a "been-there" mom of six offers encouragement
to wives, young mothers, and those not so young,
and simple common-sense approaches to
the "ings" of life:
child-rearing (hints and helps), homemaking (all areas),
cooking (simple, cheap, and do-it-yourself)
making (toys and gifts), preparing (for the unexpected),
maintaining (sanity and peace in this increasingly crazy world) and more---
all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.

Making Major Changes by Simply Looking . . . at things differently

Often, while we cannot physically change a situation we can mentally change it by developing a different attitude. 

Is it a caterpillar's end or a butterfly's beginning?
Does a thorn bush have roses or do rose bushes have thorns?
Is this obstacle a stumbling block or a stepping stone?
Is this a terrible mistake or a great opportunity to learn?

If we wait for tomorrow ---
Tomorrow comes.
If we don't wait for tomorrow ---
Tomorrow comes.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
