… it’s been a couple of weeks since our last posting! Whoa … life can speed up without us taking the time to even notice. Whoa … slow down, nelly.

Maybe the little article linked below will encourage you pause and reflect – as it did me (Carol) – on the everyday moments in your own marriage, life or family. Yes, the article just happens to offer a blush-worthy review of What Happy Parents Do. But I adored it more so because the author points out the many loving little ways we create connection even in our forgetful, mindless and ever-so-irritating ways. Take five minutes, five breathes and/or five miniature moments to pause and reflect. And then another 5 blinks to post a comment below. We adore hearing from our readers.
