    Curing the Chaos

    Considering sickness when you have children, can often create chaos. Especially when their system is already compromised. In our case, it's due to CF. In other cases, it could be anything. As everyone knows, the flu has seemed to create an epidemic. Lives have been lost, mostly in children.

    When Is It Okay to Lie to Our Children?

    It’s no secret that parents aren’t always completely honest with their children, whether to keep them sheltered from harsh realities or for their own wellbeing. Telling tall tales about mythical characters such as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, for example, can actually leave a positive impact on children. Those that eventually learn the truth, either on their own or from their parents, and choose to accept it, have realized that not having these characters around hasn’t led to negative consequences in their lives or the world as a whole.

    Interracial Love

    Interracial Love

    My husband and I never thought we would marry each other ever. I grew up in a black Christian family. And he grew up in mostly a Salvation Army church with a white mother and a Hispanic father. People ask us both these questions all the time. Why did you not marry a black man? Why did you marry a black woman? Why marry someone that is white and Hispanic? WHY?

    Let's Teach Our Children Not to Be Assholes

    I was blessed with such a thoughtful son. He holds doors open for anyone older than him. Sometimes he even remembers to put his napkin in his lap. And sometimes, he remembers to use said napkin instead of current T-shirt to wipe his face.
