ICYMI — 23

John headshot Oct2013Whew! We made it through January. I seriously don’t know anyone for whom January is their favorite month of the year. Now February…well…I know a lot of people who love February — and not just because that’s when my birthday comes.

Okay, maybe it’s mostly because that’s when my birthday comes.

Nevertheless, the weather is gradually warming up in most parts of the country. The sun is rising a little earlier and staying around a little later. It won’t be long before things green up a bit. Then the flowers will make an appearance, and — before you know it — baseball!

In the meantime, here’s a list of interesting things I found while looking around the internets.

Wendy Bradford admits that for years her parenting style was more drill sergeant than Mary Poppins, but, in the spirit of new beginnings, she made a resolution to be “softer” with her kids. Read what she’s learning on that journey. You might be prompted to make a resolution of your own.

When Tove Maren took her newborn to the ER and discovered he had an enlarged heart, she hardly expected to hear four words from a Chaplain that would change her life forever. Read what those four words were here. And, after you read them, put them into practice in your own life.

Can I talk to the men out there for just a moment? Dudes, the woman you want should want you; she shouldn’t need you. Paul Hudson tells you why.

Dating has changed significantly over the last 20 years or so. There’s this thing called the internet now and online dating sites. There’s the Facebook — where everyone knows about your relationship when you change your “status” and things become “Facebook official”. Still, whether you’re married or just looking around, there are some old-school dating habits that ought to make a comeback.

Finally, can we all just admit that Kid President is awesome?! Watch his video “A Letter to the Future” and just remember that things can be better tomorrow based on what you choose to do today. Be the reason someone dances this weekend!

Alright, dear reader, that’s it for me this week. Let me know if there’s anything I missed.

    • Those are four of the most powerful words I know, Tove. I’m so grateful you shared your story in a way I could share with others.
