This week Serena Williams lost at Wimbledon, but that is not the story. The story is that Serena Williams competed at Wimbledon less than ten months after giving birth to her daughter and about eight months after having significant pregnancy related complications. By competing, she gave hope to working moms every where. She made us expand our thoughts about life's possibilities and about what it means to be a mom simply by competing.

Wednesday Wisdom: Garden Together and Watch Your Family Blossom (guest post)




‘Children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get’ – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

With seven in ten moms working and kids over-scheduled with after-school activities, it’s never been more important to make the most of precious family time together. Gardening may just be the perfect solution! If children and their parents can find the time to come together to achieve a common goal, be it starting up a vegetable patch or building a butterfly garden, they will soon feel the benefits that gardening brings.

Yes, these are complicated times indeed.
