Today I’m having a hard time summoning a topic for a blog post… reason being… I just returned from the wake of a friend’s 12-year old son…
After spending the day playing in a football scrimmage, he went swimming and fishing with his best friend and his friend’s dad. On their way to take him home, they were in a horrific car accident that instantly claimed all three of their lives.
My heart is absolutely breaking for my friend, Pam. Life is so fragile and to lose a child must be unbearable. I can’t even imagine how she is managing to breathe at this point.
Today I ask that everyone make time to hug your children closer, embrace your spouse, and say I love you to all of them. And just take time to recognize the things that matter most… the amazing people in your life.
And if you would, say a prayer for the soul of little Ryland Reel. May he rest in peace.

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet
"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.
There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.
However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.
Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.
When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.
Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!
