With the holidays almost here, so many of us wonder how we will make it all “OK”? Many of us get lost in worry and anxiety with our kids and we forget about appreciating and finding joy in the simple things.
A few ideas for books this Thanksgiving season:
The Night Before Thanksgiving, by Natasha Wing This one os a spin-off of Clement C. Moore’s Christmas poem. It is a catchy and simple rhyming book that shares a story of a family’s Thanksgiving.—from the exciting night, before to the peaceful morning at home, to the hectic holiday kitchen scene, to the warm and fuzzy dinner table

NOVEMBER 17 – JANUARY 5 | SELECT DATES
Happy November. One of my favorite day’s is November 1, the day we celebrate our middle daughter’s birthday. Today she is 18, although you would think she has been forever, as she is truly an old soul. I am so proud of the young woman she has become and the voice and guide she is for her brother. I know it is not always easy having a sibling with special needs, and, yes, there have been days where I knew it was harder for her, but, she always leads with a quiet confidence and provides her brother with such security. I admire this young woman and I sit back with such pride. Happy Birthday to my “little girl”.
