Question of the Day: “What song makes you cry?”

Jonah and I were driving around today. Cole needed a ride to his girlfriend’s house, and we needed bread. As we drove home, “Black Birds” by the Beatles came on the radio. ”Oh, my god, I love this song,” he said as he raised his arms in the air. ”Really?” I asked as I turned…

Question of the Day: “What is the hardest part of teaching for me?”

I’ve talked about this before, so please be patient with me if you are tired of my ramblings about teaching, but I think I’ve figured out why it has been so difficult. It’s an epiphany really. It all started when I read this article for my grad class. Currently, I’m working on my doctorate in…

Question of the Day: “Is it okay for my son to attribute things to the Universe?”

For many years, I have talked about the power of “The Universe”. It is one of my core beliefs. I do believe, as Gabby Bernstein would say, the Universe has my back. I have taught my children the same thing. One son thinks I am crazy. “Seriously, Mom, I don’t know why you are always…

Question of the Day: “Is it okay if I am not Wonder Woman?”

Many years ago, my husband bought me a key chain with the WonderWoman logo on it. I have always loved Wonder Woman. I wore her underoos as a kid. The most recent movies are good, but my heart will always be with Lynda Carter and the series from the 70s. I fell in love with…

Question of the Day: “What does it feel like when I do a reading of a person who is in denial?”

The people I read always give me permission to read them. Most of the time, they are not sure what to expect. Almost all of them end up crying. I often end up crying. Sadness is such a powerful emotion, and many people go out of their way to not feel their sadness. They bury…

Question of the Day: “What lessons did I learn from my son on our nightly run?”

My son and I have been running nightly for the last week. He’s much faster than I am, so we walk to our starting spot and then he takes off. I jog casually behind him until he is done. After he runs his distance at his own pace, he turns around to meet me and…

Question of the Day: “How do I even know I am an empath?”

My husband is my biggest skeptic. He believes I have an uncanny and amazing ability to read people and pick up the often imperceptible thoughts and feelings of others, but he refuses to believe there is anything special about that. “You are incredibly perceptive, Kelly,” he retorts. “But to date, you have not done anything…

Question of the Day: “What do you do when you find a parakeet by your bird feeder?”

Since moving into our new home last spring, my husband and I have really kicked up our bird-feeding game. Multiple bird feeders span our backyard. Each space is adorned with bird houses and even long, tube-like bags filled with meal-worms and thistle. We didn’t even know you could feed birds with this varied menu. But…

Question of the Day: “What lessons have I learned from this year’s garden?”

I have wanted a large garden for years. My obsession with plants started at a very young age. It all started the day my mom bought me an African violet when I was only five years old. My diligence while taking care of the plant was unwavering. I watched it and watered it and loved…
