How Important The Mom Is

I live between two worlds: The world of Stay At Home Mom and the World of Working Mom. I am self employed working varying hours from 25-35 hours a week.  I have an amazing Home Helper, which I guess I should call Nanny but there is such guilt with that word.

When we choose to work and have someone else take care of our kids it’s hard on the mom especially. You pray for someone who will love your kids with their whole heart, that will have your value system, honor your parenting rules and just be a great person.

And then when you get it you struggle with watching your kids love someone that isn’t you. When your kids are little you may even have to hear them call their Sitter Mama… that’s hard. If you work too much then you will be exhausted when you get home and your kids will see you as the boring old mom and your daycare or Sitter as the fun one.

I’ve learned over the past 5 years it’s all a balance. I have had periods where I have had no help and periods where I had a ton of help. You learn to be a parent by default or design no matter what your circumstance. Default just lets life happen, design understands God’s intention for your work.

Whether you are a single parent, working parent, or stay at home parent you can be a parent by design. God has given you this responsibility of grooming your children, and caring for their needs. We cannot have guilt or compare ourselves to other moms who might stay at home. We are all different and we all have different strengths.

Keeping your family as a higher priority over your work doesn’t necessarily mean you are a stay at home mom. For working moms you can design your life so that you can be valuable in your work and valuable at home.

I think it starts with the journey of being our BEST SELF. God has given us a great PURPOSE… and that is Grooming our Children for Success. Raising strong, caring, independent, self disciplined children into young adults. In order to do this we must be our own strong independent, self disciplined, responsible, caring BEST SELVES. This may start with taking a strong look at our own stuff.

I was blessed this past weekend to get an AWAKENING of areas I needed to work on.  I attended www.firststepstosuccess.com. If you are looking for help in getting your life in order, being a better you and a better parent I highly encourage you to check it out.

Remember, being the best mom doesn’t equate to how many school events you went to, or how many gifts you gave your children. Being the best mom starts with being the best you so that you can love, honor and help to grow children who can be their best selves too.

God Bless you MOM.

I am rooting for you!

P.S. Here is a little comic relief with a Statistical WAKE UP CALL to How Important the Mom Is.

Mommy’s leaving for a little bit but don’t worry I have hired the following crew to take my place while I am gone:

Dietitian – to menu plan healthy and delicious meals

Essential oil expert – to make sure you have the right oils for all your ailments

Mom is the Word: Honoring Our Mothers and the Women Who Influenced Us

As mothers, our heart’s desire is to provide a safe place, wisdom, good health and lots of love for our family. We are the influencers of the next generation. As a history buff, when I ponder on Mother’s Day and our roles, I think of strong faithful women of the Bible.

One woman who stands out is Ruth. She was caring, compassionate, faithful, a servant, overcame great odds, took great risks, and was rewarded by God.

Last week we ran a special post on Life’s Journey with the Women of Our Lives. We are honored to have so many men and women share about the special woman of their lives. In honor of Mother’s Day, here are some of the stories shared.

Mary Simmons
Want to thank God for my mom; I would not know how to cook, clean and be a good wife if not for all the years of teaching and training. Thank you for never giving up on me, for homeschooling me all those years and being a great role model.

Sally Franz
I give thanks for three women who have influenced my life, besides my mother and grandmother who adopted me and made me feel so special in this world teaching me unconditional love.

The first was a church worker, who served at the university chapel where I got my first Master’s degree in 1970. She taught me so much about the fact that we are all God’s children who have gifts to share for the benefit of the world. No one is excluded, no matter their limitations.

The second one is my wonderful mentor and sponsor Patricia, who has accepted me and taught me so much about living that I had no clue. She too has accepted me without limitation and has taught me to reach beyond my boundaries to seek new horizons and reach out to others in all places to share the news of natural health and wholeness. I am grateful to God for these women being in my life.

Jay Carter
My grandmother Leona Delk had many qualities that I admired but her top 3 were her faith in Jesus, she never complained no matter how dire her circumstances, and she was giving and kind to everyone.

I never heard her ever complain. She raised 8 children and some of her grandchildren mostly on her own with very little. In the early years they were so poor the families from the poor side of town would bring them food. Yet even though she had little she would give and share what she had.

I remember as kids there was this man we all thought was crazy who lived in the woods. My grandmother would walk a couple of miles and bring food to him and make sure he was okay even though everyone told her not too. Years later she was contacted by his family to thank her for looking after him as he had been traumatized in the Vietnam War. She never went to church but was one of the most faithful, Christ like, people I know.

Ara Karlberg

Want to thank my Grandmother for being such an important influence in my life. She was there when others couldn’t be. She instilled in me a strong work ethic (she worked by choice until she was 86), my love of reading and writing (she was a Librarian), my thirst for history and genealogy (she traced our paternal side of the family back to Whales 736AD)! She was powerful, brilliant and fair. Not a day goes by that I don’t feel her presence and hear her guiding me!


Mary Ellen Fava
She’s my neighbor, my friend, neither of us have our mothers anymore. She’s 20 years older than me, but as young and beautiful in looks, thought and ideas. I turn to her for more than I have turned to my mother and she is always there for respect, guidance and love. I am blessed to have such a wonderful woman in my life. Wish it would last forever.

I wish her Happy mothers day more than all. Thank you Gaye, and brightest Blessings to you for eternity. She has bought more in my life than I can ever expect from one person. How lucky am I.

Debbie Twomey
The older we get the more women have touched our lives. First and foremost is my mother. What she taught me was strength and how to persevere. The most amazing lesson was her growth as a person that mirrored mine; she matured and changed as she learned lessons in life too.

My best friend Lorraine, who taught me that love can be unconditional and last a lifetime through the ups and downs. 
Ellen, who taught me that a kind and gentle spirit has a special place in this world and I was so lucky to have found this friendship at a time when I needed it most. The laughter we share is priceless.

And last but never least– Mary. The lessons, the gifts, the honor and respect are immeasurable. She has given me the gift of a new direction and promise in my life and opened my life and my heart to so many possibilities that had never seemed attainable. As a mentor she has gently pushed me forward when I would have been content to stagnate and as a friend she has been a shoulder, a confidant and an equal. 
Thank you to all of these women and the many more I have been lucky enough to have had in my life.

Claudia Looi
My mother taught me servanthood and honor. While my father was dying of cancer, I saw my mother serving him to the very end. In his pain and suffering, she comforted him, fed him, bathed and clothed him. As a little girl, I saw my mother honor my grandmother even when she was humiliated in front of relatives.

Theresa Chalone
Many, my mother, my grandmother, my cousin Franci, my beautiful daughter. But the one person who gave me spiritual influence was my Aunt Yolanda. These are my thoughts that were taken from her eulogy, at her funeral. It’s the best way I can explain how I greatly appreciated the deep, long lasting influence she had made in my life.

She was a wonderful, loving, devoted, kind, daughter, sister, mother and grandmother and a fabulous cook. To me she was all those things, but most importantly, she was my spiritual mentor, the epitome of a Godly and holy woman.

Whenever I would call and ask what she was doing, it was usually saying her rosary or reading her daily prayers, and when there was a crisis, we knew who to call to pray for us. Her prayers never ceased. Everything she did she did with love, and that love was the basis for her faithfulness to God.

She suffered great pain and numerous hospitalizations. But she knew that her suffering was not meaningless. Suffering doesn’t make people better; sometimes it makes them bitter, but not Aunt Yolanda. She never questioned her situation. I never saw her angry or bitter. She had many defeats at times, but she never dwelled upon her defeats. Instead she was courageous, faithful, hopeful, never complaining.

She was the one person who I could go to when my life turned upside-down. She had been there too, she knew how my heart ached, and she had felt the same pain. She taught me that no matter how bad things can get, no matter how much you have lost, that you never let go of your faith in God. He has a purpose for us all here on earth and you never question why.

In her deepest pain came the strong conviction of the presence and love of God. IN all her suffering she had joy, and we all know that joy is not the absence of suffering, but the presence of God. The bible tells us that suffering is in order that we might grow in grace…Aunt Yolanda was full of grace…

I have no doubt that God put a certain amount of iron in her soul to help her through all her trials. Aunt Yolanda desired to know Jesus and the power of his resurrection. She based her whole being on knowing Christ.

I believe that all the years she has had pain has brought her to a higher level up in heaven. We use to talk about how suffering so much was people’s gateway to heaven and I always told her that I was sure she would be sitting at God’s right hand, next to all our other departed family members.

Aunt Yolanda was a very special Aunt to me. She never judged me or anyone else. NO matter how old I was, or what kind of trouble I would get into, she never cast judgment, she just listened and if I needed a scolding she would give it to me, because she loved me.

I will never forget Aunt Yolanda, your courage, your faithfulness, devotion and kindness. It has been a privilege and honor to be her niece, to have learned from her, laughed and cried with her. Every year I would thank God for the birthday and Christmas celebrations we shared together. I will cherish all my memories of her.
Each Christmas I would give her a little angel to watch over her for the year. This year, I know she is with all those angels celebrating her arrival with them in Heaven.

Ellen Barbagallo OUR WINNER
The person I hold dearest to my heart is my Gramma & Grampa. They have been deceased for many years now as I am a grown adult with my own grandchildren and one great grandchild. My Gramma was always there for me as a child and I could always count on her and she never let me down. Whether with problems, happy occasions or just being there when I needed a place to live, she was always there to help and comfort me. She always will hold the largest portion of my Heart.

My Husband and children hold the 2nd portion of my heart and the third and final portion belongs to my Best Friend Forever, Debbie, who is the best friend I have ever had in my 67 years and this is why: 
A friend is a relative you make for yourself
A friend is one who comes In when the whole world has gone Out
There are big ships and small ships, but the best ship of all is Friendship
A True friend is one who thinks you are a Good Egg, when you are Half-Cracked
A true friend is one you can call at 4AM, or they can call you
A true friend is one who gives a compliment and means it
A true friend accepts us as we are, yet helps us to be what we should.

Debbie, you are all of this and more and I truly Love you.

Mother’s Day offers a time of reflection of the women in our lives, our mothers, being a mom and a woman.

Each of us have a story and we will be one of the stories that our children and grandchildren live to tell. Whether we are struggling or enjoying being a mother, we can empower each other to grow and expand our positive influence.

I want to invite you to join me on this journey of motherhood, to celebrate our roles, to act in love and honor and to create total wellness for our family and ourselves. Leave me a comment below.

Life’s Journey With The Women In Our Lives

There is always one woman in our lives, whether it is our mom, grandmother, a teacher or a special friend who made a difference to us. They are the women we admire and look up to, women who seem to do the impossible, women who overcome the odds, women who lead the way, or women who raised us up.  The women in our lives are there for us in life’s journey.

Who is that woman to you?  

Maybe you have several women?

In the journey of life, with the ups and downs that we traveled through each year, we encountered women who have impacted us, given more than we asked for, influenced us and accepted us as we were. Some probably had gone the extra mile and led us down the right path and destiny of our life.

I have a few women in my life through the years. They have contributed to who I am today.

Each has come alongside in a specific season and has taught me these attributes:

Work ethic  
I have always had a good work ethic and have been making my own money since I was 11 years old. My mom was my greatest influence.  I remember being 4 years old and my mom working all day and going to school at night to improve her career.

Late at night she would be doing her homework and then, the next morning, waking up early to go to work. She would many times work two jobs, sometimes out of necessity, but mostly out of the joy she got from what she was doing.

My mom was elected as a city official that helped make improvements to our community that will last for decades. This shows the importance of contributing to the betterment of our community. She taught me to work hard, enjoy what you do and make a difference.

Caring  
I would say my mom and dad both have a wonderful heart and ability to care for others. My mom always is baking cakes for someone’s birthday at work or making a quilt for someone’s new baby. She weekly can be found bringing dinner to a homebound friend, or giving an elderly person a ride somewhere.

Both my mom and dad’s big hearts have given me a heart for others….

Unfortunately, it also means I cry at every sad story or commercial. I have developed a passion to help others. I passionately want to see them succeed in their health, finances or just anything they desire.

Encouragement
My senior year of high school was challenging but I had several teachers who encouraged me and pushed me to be better. One teacher took time to help me prepare for a very intense Leadership Scholarship presentation and interview at a Keuka College.

I was very prepared and won the scholarship beating out 30 other finalists.  I wouldn’t have been able to go to Keuka College without that scholarship. And without the foundation I got there in that small classroom environment, it wouldn’t have helped me make it through the difficult Pre-med classes and onto my Doctorate in Chiropractic. I owe that success to the help and encouragement to the encourager at that time, my teacher.

Then there are the simple little cards. One simple card given to me has stuck in my head for over 20 years. Mrs. Bouchard, my senior year high school English teacher wrote us all a handwritten card of encouragement and gave it to us the last day of our senior year.

In that card, Mrs. Bouchard showed she cared about my future successes and me. She taught me the importance of encouraging others and never overlook simple handwritten notes and cards. The simple gesture of speaking life and positive futures to those who crossed my path.

Who I am today, I owe it to the women in my life

Today I am the CEO of a 13-year-old company that helps thousands of individuals all over the world make smarter and healthier lifestyle choices.

But my greatest joy is being a mom and wife. I love that role and it brings me great happiness. I know I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for the people who shaped my life.

How about you? Do you have a woman you admire? One who has impacted your life in a big way?
It’s easy to go through our days and get caught with activities and demands and forget the many goodies. Let’s ponder a moment…

Who are the women in my life that have contributed to my life’s journey?
What did I learn from them?
Who are you today?
Who are you influencing?

I’ve thought through these questions for the last few days. I am influencing my family, associates and clients through my examples of delegation, boundaries and prioritization. As a leader, wife and mom, the people I’m in contact with are observing my attitude, lifestyle and priorities.

Most importantly, they see my success comes from putting God first, myself and my family second, and my career third.

Mother’s Day is around the corner. I want to honor and show my gratitude to all my readers and women in my life. So the best way is to run a contest and get this going.

I’m inviting all of you to join me on my Facebook page and leave a comment about the woman or women in your life. https://www.facebook.com/TheTotalWellnessDocandMom
