Sadly I am often surprised by how, when given the opportunity, people are not kind to a stranger. We live in a harsh and cynical world where there is not a lot of kindness. I understand people are jaded, but when you make a conscious decision to not lend a hand to someone in need,...

I am just not as Tiger-esque as I had hoped to be this summer, in fact I am the very opposite of the Tiger Mother! But, I did have big plans to become one over the summer break… And even bigger plans to grow a pair when it comes to my children NOT sitting around watching TV,...

As I was visiting my kids’ Pediatrician the other day, again, I thought about how often I am in there. Is it strange that I am on a first name basis with the front desk staff, or that I know more about what’s going on in their life than I need to know? Speaking of knowing too much...

I absolutely love being Jewish, I love everything about it, the food, the culture, the faith itself. However, the terrible thing about being Jewish is that constant feeling that there is something wrong with you. Seriously, worry is our “thing”! That’s just what we do, what has...
