As I tell myself a thousand times a day,  do not weaken, give lots of love to others and to yourself, be grateful, practice kindness, live now, give and seek forgiveness, and always hope  the blessing of the forces beyond our control are with you and those you love.

DISCLAIMER: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS FOR I HAVE DYSGRAPHIA.  If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. I have dysgraphia which means that sometimes my sentence structure is not that easy to follow or I make other errors. Still, most people understand me. All of my books are professionally edited, but not all of my blog posts are.  If this troubles you, feel free to read elsewhere.  If you persevere, you are practicing kindness by lifting my spirits for that means you find what I say helpful and that is one of my missions. Kindness always repays those who spread it.

REMEMBER TO GET INSPIRED AND INSPIRE YOUR CHILDREN

An email friend sent me this wonderful video of a flash mob gathering to play Beethoven’s Ninth.  The grands, almost three and just a year–both loved it.

PARENTING ADVICE ABOUT MUSIC

Be with beauty is one of the Emotional Fitness Exercises described in my book Parents Are People Too, An Emotional Fitness Program for Parents.  Watching my two grands enjoy this video made my day and reminded me to keep looking for ways to  introduce them early to classical music.  We did that with their fathers and both love all kinds of music.

Music has many ways to move your children along the path to greater emotional health.  Here is the  National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences  music for children’s page.  A minor crank is that they don’t include classical music — but you can correct that.

PRACTICE KINDNESS

Just a quick post but do be kind, another way to stay emotionally strong, and share this with someone whose spirits will be lifted as mine were. That will help me and might help someone else and you can feel virtuous for being kind.
