I'm at that age in my life where I think a lot.... and I normally think a lot, so my thinking has just increased dramatically, lol. After I'm don't thinking, I think to myself, do other people think this? Well.... do you? I often conclude my thought with "The world would be a better place if everyone just thought like me!"

Change gears a bit... I recently saw a documentary and although I really enjoyed it there was one part that got me pretty upset. This "Doctor," I believe she was, said that children in low income families have a vocabulary that is thousands of worse less than children who grow up in a family that is well-off.

And I guess I'm not mad at the "Doctor," but mad at the parents, or society or God, because does the Bible not say not to let others see that you are "poor" or "hungry?" Yet, we often see those children and families and we automatically know and sometimes assume that they are low-income. Yes, they might not afford the same tuition-based schools or fancy daycare's and expensive trips, but we should make the most of what we got and not be so down in the dumps because we are poor. We have each other
and we have so much public assistance, libraries, free education, friends and family who can enrich our lives!

Just because you are poor doesn't mean you have to eat alphabet soup 7 days a week! Just because you are poor doesn't mean you can walk into the library and check out books and movies (FOR FREE!). AND, just because you are poor doesn't mean you have to choose to pay for INTERNET rather than saving that money to treat your family on vacation!

I know it can be hard for someone with no job or no car to put a smile on your face, but our children, your children are watching you! They are watching how you deal with the challenges that you face every moment of everyday!

Not sure if this post made any sense... but I hope you have a great weekend! I take every opportunity that is thrown my way to teach my girls something, whether it be a new word or experience and you don't have to be rich to do that! My girls (all 3) are enrolled in a wonderful school and one of their motos'

Above is a photo that I took at our local library. They are having a FREE Summer Reading Program with special guests and activities for the kids almost everyday! It is so sad that this is the only time that the library is full. Even then, the parents are on their cell phones most of the time... They are only 5 years old once! #ENDRANT
