I Never Knew Her but I Think of Her Often

Each weekday I load up the kids in the car and begin the morning carpool.  There's a certain stoplight that catches us occasionally and until a few months ago, I never really paid much mind to that stoplight.  To me it was just another stoplight.  Nothing special.  Until one August morning in 2013.   As we approached the stoplight, the news of what had happened the night before, only hours earlier, pierced my heart.  The kids asked why there were candles and remnants of police tape scattered about.  I pretended not to hear.  I remember my eyes swelling with tears and blurring my vision as I tried to disguise my disgust with the world from the kids. I heard the news of the murder of a young mother on the morning broadcast, but hadn't thought of the location...nor the fact it was on the very route we take Monday through Friday in the morning carpool...until that stoplight turned red.  Unable to drive past the scene, we sat there for what seemed an eternity, waiting for the ligh

Valentines Day is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to begin searching for that one of a kind unique gift for your sweetheart.   Novica  offers unique, handcrafted gifts from all over the world.  I've been a Novica customer for several years and no matter what I purchase, I have comfort knowing my gift is a truly unique.  No two items are alike as each item is handcrafted.   A few years ago, a friend of mine returned from a missionary trip in Central America and I found a pair of earrings from the region she served in.  She loved the earrings, but more importantly, she was glad to hear of company that provided sustainable income for local artisans.  Novica grants artisans an opportunity to sell their wares in an international platform.   I could go on about how Novica is making a difference in the world, but I'd love to share a few of my fave items found on their website.  I have gifted newlywed friends with drinking glasses I purchased from Novica.

Check Out the Lenovo IdealTab

When I think about it, the Three Boys and an Old Lady family is a pretty techie family.  We've got gadgets and gizmos and thingsawidgets galore.  A couple of years ago the kids adored their Dell Slime laptop but as they've grown, they've longed for their own gadget versus one they have to share. It's kinda tough when you think of having to shell out hundreds of bucks for one gift for just one child but thank goodness for grandparents.  Grandma and Pops gifted each of the children with their very own Lenovo IdealTab tablets.  Oh, the places they will go.   As a mom, my first thought was all the homework assistance they'll be able to conquer and how much our electricity bill will decrease due to the long battery runtime.  Within minutes of opening their gifts, each of them began customizing their tablets with books, apps and games of their choosing.  Mom and Pops were amazed at how quickly each of the kids were online and gaming away.  Of course, Hubby chimed in r
