Take a stand against Severe Acute Malnutrition with PB+J Foods!

Did you know that Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) is the number one killer of children under five years of age? Nearly 20 million children around the world suffer from SAM. In fact, SAM kills 3.5 million children each year. To put that in perspective, that’s more than HIV, AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria combined. As a mother (and a person) that is an unacceptable fact. So what can we do to help?Continue reading

Learning to Love and not Hate……

On Thursday morning I saw this posted on Planting Peace’s Facebook page and immediately shared it on my own. Throughout the day I thought of the words on this picture and just how true they are. In the past several months there have been numerous tragic events involving school and workplace shootings, kidnappings, killings, suicides as a result of bullying and much more. Each time I hear of these situations my heart aches for the families of all involved. As difficult as it is to have a loved one taken away as a result of hate crimes I wonder how the parents of the perpetrator feel. What parent wants to know that their child has committed a horrific crime all in the name of hate? This past week the mother of a seven year old little boy made him a Klu Klux Klan costume for him to wear for Halloween. Naturally this made the local news and a firestorm has rippled through their community and throughout my state. This mother defends her right to do whatever she wants and has openly shared her support of the KKK and what she believes is normal behavior. Of course she has a right to dress her son in whatever she wants for Halloween, however, she is doing nothing more than teaching her little boy how to hate.Continue reading

Karla’s Korner: Big Kids

Big Kids….

It’s the day after my birthday, my husband is away on a golf outing with old college friends (no, I’m not angry that he missed my birthday), my son is in his room playing a video game online with a friend and my daughter and her girlfriend are tucked away in the basement studying their brains out and writing papers for college. My house is full for a change and I am a happy momma.

When my daughter left for college in 2011 I felt that my heart would break into a million pieces. The fact that she was less than thirty minutes away did not make her absence any less noticeable; she was gone and her room was empty. Quite often the quietness was deafening. During her first year of college visits home were sparse and too short for my liking. Looking back on that year I think it was her way of proving that she could make it on her own and that it was time for me to take a step back and allow her to be the boss of her own life. As difficult as it was for me to take that step back I am so thankful that I did. Now, visits home are more frequent and I’m noticing that while I am still the mom our relationship has changed; it’s pretty cool to have big kids in the house.Continue reading
