Real world back-to-school checklist — One Moore Thing

school shoppingIt is almost time to send your dear cherubs back to school. I literally just paused from typing to high five myself. But first, let’s focus. You have some back to school shopping to do. That list of 72 items per child is a surefire good time that leads you to wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat muttering, “Where are the prongs?” But believe it or not there is even more that you need before September arrives.

29 Reasons why you need to go on a girls' weekend — One Moore Thing

Every year, my closest friends from home that I have loved for over twenty years and I escape our daily lives and spend three nights at one of my friend’s family homes on the Jersey Shore. It is bliss. Today is Wednesday and I am still basking in the glow of how therapeutic it felt to laugh for hours on end. I think girls getaways should be the required homework of motherhood.

Words for a friend who has lost someone — One Moore Thing

OceanDear Friend Who Has Lost Someone That They Love,

Hi there. I know that people are blanketing you with words like “I’m sorry” right now because they just don’t know what else to say. I wish I had the right words to offer you. All I know is that there are aches attached to grief that can never be healed. Sometimes there are no right words, no right explanation. Sometimes life is not fair. Sometimes there is a loss so deep that part of our pulse is taken with it. Sometimes there are no band-aids. Sometimes there is no solution; no quick fix; no miracle cure. Sometimes all we need is time. Sometimes we know that time will never be enough. Sometimes we need people to say that they are here; that they aren’t going anywhere. And if you need someone to remember, I will remember with you. If you need to be seen, I will see you.
