The Best of Life

          The phrase 'Best of Life,' might be described as the hopeful joy and satisfaction that is achieved from doing the best you can, with what you have, in the time that you've been given.


Notice that wealth or health is not a requirement!  


Some of us do not "have" as much as others.  Some don't have a lot of "time" either.  However, "the best you can" refers to our 'personal' challenges, as well as our desire to be happy and victorious with life, in spite of our situation.

The Best of Life series of verse stories is intended to take a look at life from many perspectives.  Each opens the door to the human situation in a specific way and with a particular theme.  Topics touch upon our past and future, love, aging, working, parenting, family and friends.  Other stories include the essentials of our personal well being such as faith, hope, empathy and charity.  You might even discover our place in the universe.  Every story is different, just like those who decide to enter these pages.  Lots to think about!  Enjoy!

10 More Tales to Talk About  -  Volume 2


             Kids who reach the 'tween' years (8-12), experience enormous shifts in their physical, emotional, and cognitive development.  While some children look in the mirror and see height and strength changes, others may experience awkwardness, clumsiness, weight gain, and other characteristics that may make them feel less than 'normal' when they compare themselves to their friends.


                                                            It's the time for comparisons. 

They'll attempt to determine if they are as fast, smart, strong, tall, coordinated, etc.. For some, this is scary. Even though kids begin to look to their friends and perhaps to their internet devices for many answers, they are very much in need of parental guidance and support. 

                                 It's the time to discover the world and ask a 'zillion' questions.                                      Finding the best answers is important to them and to you.  It's all about your child's social awareness.  Parents can help to form this 'social landscape' by sharing good answers to these very good questions. Today, children from 8-12 years old, spend between 4-6 hours per day looking at screens! Teens average a whopping 7-9 hours per day staring at their devices. Even while in the same room, they’ll often choose their favorite social media rather than talking with each other. So who will they learn from . . . you or the internet?


I invite parents to gather your children and enjoy both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of important topics that you'll want to share with them.  That's  20 easy bedtime type, fun stories that are most definitely
