The World is our Family

Helping hands worldwide

The world’s countries secure their borders so that ‘foreigners’ won’t come in. They keep their ‘own’ in and others out. But when we really look at the immediate families of those around us, most of us

Milk is not your leading source of calcium.

Calcium Rich Foods

A healthy diet is imperative to our health.

Falls are a common occurrence. Many people fall daily. Toddlers fall multiple times a day and fortunately they generally bounce right back up and are none the worse for wear, but as we get older, the risks of being hurt from falling, increase greatly. Bones begin to lose their mass and density, so it is crucial that we maintain a proper diet especially as we age.

Who but God?

Multi-colored sky


You Quit Trying. Now Try Quitting!

Dad yelling at daughter

If only we could love and accept people as they are; not to say that they should not try to be their best, the person God created them to be, but sometimes as humans we have this crazy notion that we are inadequate and not because we are not trying our level best, but just because we feel that we

A Good Deal is No Deal if your Kids won't Wear it!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Some of Many Styles Found at Famous Footwear

School shopping is not for the faint of heart.

If you are taking a child or children school shopping you know how quickly the dollars can add up. I used to try my hardest to put aside money throughout the summer because I knew how expensive school shopping could be, but I could not seem to save any money during the summer when I had a house full of teenagers with hollow legs and expensive tastes!!
Being stylish is expensive!
I had all four of my children in NYC, so when we moved to my home state of Michigan, they thought they were expected to be more stylish. NY is the home of the fashion industry and many of the styles we saw students wearing in Michigan, had already been sported and replaced in New York so my children wouldn't hear of wearing those so shopping became a real chore and an expensive one to boot!
I had four children and a budget!
As much as I tried to reason and explain to my children that I could only do so much, I understood that peer pressure was harder on them than it had been on me. They were the new kids on the block and I wanted them to look good because a child does better in school and is more confident when they look good but still it was just me doing for them!

One of the most expensive things on the list was shoes!

It seemed like every time I turned around one of the children needed new shoes. There was no way I could keep up with the growth spurts on a budget that refused to budge! As soon as they were able to they found after school jobs and helped with their clothing expenses. We had an arrangement where I paid so much and they chipped in so we were all very happy when we found Famous Footwear at the mall. The big signs grabbed my attention and the kids kinds of moaned and groaned till they saw the shoes, then they were sold. A deal means nothing if your kids won't wear it but they loved these shoes!!

Signs of summer and a word from a bird.

Petting a cockatiel


Have you bought your kid's school shoes yet?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Famous Footwear

Cheap clothes aren't deals if the kids won't wear them.

I loved summers with my children because we had a lot of things we loved to do as a family like trips to the zoo, but all good things come to an end and the end of summer brought school shopping.  With four children I needed to find the best deals, ones that enabled us to get the best quality for the lowest prices, but also items my children would wear.  Even if I could find clothing for free (I couldn't!), if they didn't like them and wouldn't wear them, this was not a deal!  

BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon

We fell in love with Famous Footwear!

Shoes were by far the hardest things to please the kids on but once we found Famous Footwear the problem was solved. Before that we bounced in and out so many stores in the mall, that we are all hungry and frazzled before we even found one pair of shoes! 


Take advantage of the back to school special!

At Famous Footwear we quickly found the shoe styles we loved and prices we could afford. Then there were specials that made them even better. Right now Famous Footwear is having a back to school special that adds an additional savings on top of the already great BOGO offer of 15% to 20% savings and a coupon you can print up at their website and take into the store with you.  Redeem your coupon from August 2 through August 18.


I can't say enough good about Famous Footwear. When I go shopping I like to find a friendly courteous staff, a wide selection, great prices and great styles. I found all that and more at Famous Footwear. If they did not have my size or one of the children's they would order it for us. I wear an 11 wide so have had to spend a lot of time searching for stylish shoes, but not here. I always go home with a pair of comfortable and stylish shoes, or two because the second one is half off!  

Also join the free rewards program.
For every $1.00 spent you earn a point. Enough points will earn you a certificate up to $100.00 each year. Just for signing up receive a discount and find more within the store. What are you waiting for?

Focused on the Sky

Evening Sky

Dark clouds

Dark clouds

Usually it is skies full of vibrant colors 

that would catch my eye
Streaks of gold or clouds of pink 

casually rolling by
Golden globes of sunlight

 or ones of rosy red
These are the skies that grab my eye

 and keep my spirit fed
But somehow this sky tonight

 stopped me in my tracks
I had to grab my camera

 and quickly get some snaps
The shoppers, they were fussing, 

trying to hurry by
With me and my camera

 focused on the sky.


nature by God

Ain't it grand?

Grand River

Grand River

Grand River

Oh if I could but stay home today

And blog of all I see

I'd post a picture of a flower

And also of a tree

I wouldn't move from my seat

So happily would I type

Typing, typing, typing,

About all of the hype...

But where would I find the picture

Of the lovely tree

Or of the flowers, clouds or skies?

Would the images come to me?
