One of the greatest joys this mom has is also being a GRAMMIE to three fabulous grand-children.
I leave tomorrow to visit these wonderful young people. To maintain privacy, I’ll use initials only.
L is a four-year-young amazing active adorable little girl.
O is now 2, and has managed to potty-train herself by following the lead of her sister.
H just turned 1, and I look forward to giving him his presents in person, with a gift each of my grand-daughters.
So, how to make a visit as pleasant as possible?
Here is what I intend to do, so I’ll share:
Seven Tips for a Successful Visit
1. Center yourself daily! Be in your inner peaceful place. Allow this peace to emanate from you.
2. Love yourself all the time. In this space of love, also definitely love your family members, friends, “other” as best you can, the planet.
3. Remember, this is their home with their rules. You are a visitor here. Be sure to treat everyone with respect, and be treated by everyone with respect.
4. Bring joy to everything. Add JOY as a daily ingredient and create a minimum of 15 minutes of JOY daily.
5. Be a contribution. Always find a way to make whatever is happening better, more enlightened, more loving, more beneficial.
6. Speak and Interact with Loving Wisdom in your heart, mind, body and attitude. Whatever you have to say, remember, Love is the Highest Way to Communicate. This has to be real. Go back to # 1, if need be.
7, Pray, Meditate, BREATHE, Affirm, Fill With GRATITUDE and Stay Connected to Source/Goddess/God/Essence. Do this several times daily. From this core, you will be Guided about what to say, when to be silent, when to give, when to receive. If you find yourself getting distressed, then PAUSE, and inhale and exhale slowly and deeply from your diaphragm in three-part breathing. Do this a minimum of three times.
I am so looking forward to seeing these energetic, blessed little beings!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May your life be filled with joy!!!!!!!!!!!
On another note, yes, I am beyond grateful that President Obama continues as President. More on that in another post.

Moms, we are on the eve of a critical election! We have pull!!!!!!!
Vote for President Obama! He and Vice President Joe Biden champion women – intelligent, articulate, evolving women. Women/moms with or without money! Women/moms of every complexion, religion, background! President Obama is the father of GIRLS! He is committed to his daughters – plus yours and mine — having a great life, with possibility and freedom.
In terms of this Choice/Abortion issue. No one I know loves abortion. Abortion is a necessity so long as we have unwanted pregnancies. Yes, we must have universal contraception that works and is safe. Absolutely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We also have to have choice.
Do you remember what women did before choice was legal? I do!
There were women who put hangers inside themselves to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. These women sometimes aborted, sometimes created great danger to both their fetuses and themselves.
I am a huge champion of contraception. Every sexually active female and male must have this, plus the knowledge, skill and wherewithal to use the birth control properly.
I love life. I love babies. I loved being pregnant. All this by conscious choice!!!!!!!!!!!
Forced pregnancies are as reprehensible as forced abortions.
We all need choice, consciousness, contraception available to us without someone else sticking their business into our privacies. Yes, we have to educate all girls, teens, women on how our bodies work, and how to prevent getting pregnant.
The Republican candidates would scrap Planned Parenthood, make abortion illegal, take away women’s rights that many of us — I am of THAT age — fought so hard for.
Do you want to be like a country with women walking several steps behind their men???? This is what Romney and his ilk want, be well aware of it.
Vote for President Obama, and for a Democratic Congress, so we can more done this term, and really make a huge difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bless us all ladies!!!!!!!
