If Wishes Were Horses

To quote the fabulous Lucinda Williams, “If wishes were horses, I’d have a ranch.” How about YOU?

Love Matters

Love Matters

Mostly, I wish that love was all that mattered in the fight to heal the broken hearts (brains) of our children. If it were, all of our children would grow and heal and thrive, because we parents have love to give by the buckets full.

Unfortunately, love is only one ingredient. It is essential, but more is required. Sometimes YOU can throw into the pot everything imaginable, including the kitchen sink, for years on end and still not have enough ingredients to make a delicious stew.

So, my dears, make soup.

When you pick the freshest veggies, reduce the stock to sublime, raid the garden for just the right herbs, and season the best you know how, YOU can feel proud of the soup YOU prepared. The rest of the cooking is up to your beautiful child. There may be a wonderful stew there, with a little more simmering in adulthood.
