Growing up some of my fondest memories of visiting my grandparents was the garden they had. My Pop-Pop always had corn, different color beans, tomatoes, and much more. He also grew flowers and herbs that kept the air smelling nice and sweet. Because of him I started my own small vegetable and herb garden in the backyard, and this year I have attempted to grow a peony bush just like the one he had in his garden.
The Burnout Blog
Disclaimer: this blog is meant for entertainment purposes. We are not medical professionals, and we are not trying to diagnose your definition of burnout. We are simply helping you understand that you are not alone during this time, and that we understand what you are going through.
The term “burnout” has been part of our vocabulary for the past year. Since some of us have left the office to work from home and shelter in place, we have been having a difficult time compartmentalizing what is going on from day to day (this goes for people working in an office, too). You are not alone in feeling this way. We thought this week we would share the 3 symptoms of a burnout, and how you can help get out of the funk. These are our suggestions and help us to feel better, and we hope they help you feel better too.
It is that time of the year again where we share our love with those around us. Whether you have found that special someone, or you find yourself in a relationship with yourself, it is important to have a bit of love this Valentine’s Day. We want to share with you the different self-love and self-care ideas to help you through a COVID Valentine’s Day. It is all about doing something YOU love whether it is self-love or self-care. Enjoy!
‘Twas the Eve before Christmas, and COVID is still here
Not a party was forming, not even near;
The stockings have been strung from the banister with care,
In the hopes that baseball tickets will be there.
As we revisit G4G, we have learned that perseverance always pays off!
Love can be defined as a strong feeling of deep affection.
This must be the most difficult blog I’ve written to date. As someone who is childless in their mid-30’s, I have been debating how I need to approach this topic for weeks. It is not to say I have little empathy for those who are not able to raise their own child, but rather I have too much empathy for the child who was dealt this lot in life. I’ll never forget my sociology professor my freshman year of college stated that, “we choose our parents”. I cannot imagine any child choosing for their parents to be absent in their lives. With all this being said, Gratitude 4 Grandparents is the silver lining in these child’s lives.
It has been a whirlwind five months. So many questions that are unanswered: how are we educating our children? Are hybrid classes the best choice? Are our children safe in the classroom? Is my child able to learn online? There is much uncertainty in children’s education that most do not know the correct choice for Religious Education either. Parish Giving is here to support whatever decision you have made and would like to share what some parishes have come up with.
