Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Focusing: my life and my blog

So, a while ago I spoke about wanting to change the name of my blog. I have decided on a name, and a focus. This will still be a personal blog, but no more memes and fluff. Day to day life and frustrations will fit the new theme, but I want my thoughts to have some meaning.

This is a good time to change. With the stress of graduating and adjusting to working again, I have been slow in the posts. I am renewing a commitment to this blog, and to the new (and old) subject manner.

First, to share a quote. This was one given to me a long time ago, and it has always resonated:
"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!"

- Lilian G. Katz, Phd.
So, it is with that quote, I would like to unveil "Everyone's Child". A chronicle of life both as the parent of children that don't fit in neat little boxes, and as a person trying to help those struggling on their own journey. Learning to mesh life as a concerned parent and a practitioner.

Definitely a work in progress.

I have an update, which involves incompetence, stress, sibling rivalry, Summer camp, and some good news too!
And I am making you wait, because I am evil like that.

Among the changes, I am going to re-format the visual theme and trim the sidebars. I will probably make the quote part of the theme as well.

Stay tuned!!
