    Independence Day!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    Fireworks9Check out these facts about our famous July 4th celebration of freedom, liberty, and independence.

    Did you know?…

    • The Fourth of July honors the “birthday” (July 4, 1776) of the U.S., which is turning 238 years old.

    • The Declaration of Independence was created and adopted because the 13 colonies objected to being taxed by the British government, and they felt they had no vote in the decisions that affected them. Once approved by the Continental Congress, the Declaration put the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a nation. The whole endeavor was considered high risk and unlikely to succeed. Read more »


    Don’t Forget Dad!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    Fathers Day9We went all out celebrating Mother’s Day. Now, let’s rally for the guys this Father’s Day! Celebrate all of the great men in your life—Stepfathers, Fathers-in-law, Grandfathers, Great Grandfathers, Uncles, friends, etc. In some families dear old Dad and other special men get sidelined into the background, so it’s important to show them that they haven’t been forgotten. Of note, my Father and my Husband have always been Kings of the day, every day!

    Did you know that the idea of Father’s Day might have been inspired by a memorial service that was held in 1907 for a large group of men, many of them Fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia? The origin of Father’s Day is also attributed to Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington. As a way of honoring her Father, a widowed Civil War veteran named William Smart, Sonora encouraged local churches, shopkeepers, and government officials to support her suggestion of establishing the equivalent of Mother’s Day for Fathers. Because her Father was born in June, she focused on that month for honoring Fathers, and due to her efforts Father’s Day was first celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. Read more »


    100 Words for Mom!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    Pink flowers big bunch9While researching the history of Mother’s Day, I came across this wonderful quote by former U.S. President George Washington:

    “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”

    Today marks the official 100th anniversary of celebrating Mother’s Day in the U.S., so I have listed 100 words—including those you shared since Friday—describing Mothers. Read more »


    One Word—Mother!

    Flowers varietyMother’s Day is Sunday!

    We’re asking friends and fans to share just one word to describe a wonderful Mother. Of course, a mother is much more than what could be summarized in one word. I’m just curious to see which words you share.

    My word is “Loving.”

    Mother May!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    Pink flower single9It’s May now and that’s a big month for me. First of all it brings my favorite weather. I bask in the warm, then warmer, then hot weather that starts now and goes through September. It’s also my birth month, so I look forward to a little birthday fun with family and friends. And, of course—it’s the month of Mother’s Day!

    Mother’s Day is a true favorite of mine. I remember the first one when I was a Mother. It was stunning! My son was five months old so I was really settling into being a Mom. And wow—really understanding the deep, powerful love that a Mother has for her child. Embracing a feeling that I was now fully alive, living with a deeply important purpose. Read more »


    Not Just a 4th Grade Play!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    play19The other day I attended my son’s fourth grade play. That might seem like a pretty “basic,” all-American thing to do on a Friday morning. It comes about one year after the third grade play and about one year before the fifth grade production—and so on. I bet most people reading this blog have attended at least one fourth grade play. Right?

    If you have, then you know that the fourth grade play is anything but “basic” in the heart of a parent or a teacher. The other morning we were beaming for a full thirty minutes—laughing, clapping, tapping our feet, swaying, awing, and definitely smiling. Then, at the end, I could see the two fourth grade teachers spring from their seats, essentially jumping for joy! Joy for the success, talent, effort, fun, personality, dedication, and teamwork that they helped to make happen—that morning and all year long.

    Thank you teachers, everywhere!

    Egg Roll!

    Posted in Posted in Life by Lucy

    Easter Egg Roll9Eggs are an ancient symbol of new life, fertility, and rebirth; and what we usually call “Easter eggs” are also often linked to pagan customs celebrating springtime. This reverence for eggs includes the well-known tradition of dying and decorating eggs as part of Easter celebrations. And during the season, egg hunts and egg rolling are especially two popular egg-tivities!

    Today the First Family is hosting the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll, a race in which children push decorated, hard-boiled eggs across the White House lawn. It’s actually one of the oldest annual events in White House history. Read more »

    Bunny9While waiting for the Easter bunny to come hopping down the trail, why not brush up on your bunny rabbit knowledge? Did you know…?
