Here in Minnesota and around the country, school is back in session.
Although parents send their children off to school everyday and expect them to do well, their involvement can add an important extra ingredient that will increase their children's success. It has been proven that parent participation is the ingredient that makes the difference. Parents' active participation with their child's education at home and in school brings great rewards and can have a significant impact on their children's lives. Everyday in our community, children are left to decide the value of education in their lives. If we are going to have success, this cannot continue. We as parents, grandparents, and people of influence, must be involved.

Today is a very special day for me.
Today something amazing is going to happen because I believe it will. This is how I start each and every day. I start my day out by saying this out loud and believing this in my heart. This is my daily "motivational moment."

Didn't get enough gardening in this season? Don't worry there is still time to grow garden-fresh vegetables and herbs this fall and winter.
Purchase transplants and seeds that will grow and flourish in the cooler fall and winter temperatures. Lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, root vegetables, edible pansies and calendula as well as cole crops, like broccoli, are a few to consider.

Where's your passion?
Is it in the work that you do on a daily basis? Are you still trying to figure out how to turn that passion into a job? Then you are not alone. There are so many people who go to work and daydream about one day doing what they love to do. They dream about turning that passion into a profitable business for themselves and their families. And then there are those who aren't in it for the money. They just want to do what makes them happy or what would bring some happiness to someone else. A true passion is something that you would do even if you didn't get paid. Not everything is about monetary satisfaction. There is satisfaction in knowing that you have a peace of mind and you are doing what makes you happy.
