Perspective

The greatest gift you can give your mother....  your time.  

Life is not about the stuff... but rather the people around your dining room table... 

 

Witnessed that this past weekend as I went home to help my mother who is recovering from a stroke... on the outside she is well cared for, wants for nothing... 

 

But what gave her the most joy?  Being with the ones she loves... family...talking to friends... the time healed her...

Bible Gateway passage: Isaiah 43:2 - The Message | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
When You’re Between a Rock and a Hard Place - But now, GOD’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end— Because I am GOD, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.

The book's young co-author, Natalie McGriff of Jacksonville, Florida, said she hopes the comic will empower girls of color like her who lack representation in mainstream media. "Moxie Girl" was created after Natalie told her mom she hated two things: her natural hair and reading, Natalie said. Natalie’s mom, Angela Nixon, said this raised a red flag for her. "Me being black, of course, I used to get picked on in school for my natural hair, and I didn't want that to happen to my daughter," Nixon

Duchess Kate's easy labor, plus Prince Harry's reaction to his niece

Duchess Kate's easy labor, plus Prince Harry's reaction to his niece | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
The royal baby already has one playboy swooning. "She is absolutely beautiful," Prince Harry said, via a Kensington Palace statement. "I can't wait to meet her." The lovable royal is in Australia right now, so he has yet to meet his new niece, but Prince William reportedly called his younger brother shortly after the royal baby was born. "Harry was worried he would be asleep when the news broke, so he was really happy that he was up to take the call from William," a source told Us Weekly. The call came as Prince William sat in the Lindo Wing where Kate recovered from an relatively easy delivery. And less than 10 hours later, Kate and Will debuted their little bundle of joy. "Everything went extremely well," a source told PEOPLE of the super-smooth delivery. Kate's a royal pro.
Amanda Carroll's insight:

she makes it look soooo easy....  

 

10 hours after having my baby's I was a big heaping mess of a woman... kind of not fair... lol

Ben Affleck Apologizes for PBS Slavery Censorship: 'I Was Embarrassed'

Ben Affleck Apologizes for PBS Slavery Censorship: 'I Was Embarrassed' | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
Ben Affleck has issued an apology and shed light on attempts to edit out his slave-owning ancestors from the PBS program “Find Your Roots.” In a Facebook post  Affleck gave his take on the request to scrub his ancestry, found in the Sony Wikileaks archive in a conversation between studio chief Michael Lynton and show producer Louis “Skip” Gates Jr.
Amanda Carroll's insight:

We all have something in our past we are embarrassed  from.. I get why he did it.  I think it would have been great to see this struggle on the show though...  the reaction to this news, and then the respect about what kind of a person and the family he leads now.  He's a good family man from what I can tell.  We all overcome a past... the paper trail may not be erased.  So thankful it is in God's mind...
