How is your life different from that of your parents?
God bless you real good with more grace. Wealth is a mindset. Want less and appreciate more today. Be thankful for your life. For your health, your family, your friends, and your home. This is a great reminder for me. I continually practice gratitude, but sometimes catch myself wishing and wanting more wealth money. It is then I need to remind myself of this, because the only time I get caught in the trap of this is when I begin to compare myself to others. Thank you all for the insightful replies.

Then 4 years ago her mom and the father of the twins died in a car accident. But I also feel trapped with someone who can't laugh at my jokes or commiserate on how hard the day has been for both of us. And what the… is my shirt wet? Are they leaking…? Why are they leaking?
Should they be leaking? Cool, cool, cool. My giant brown areola boobs leak now. If you are the type that grooms the, uh, ya know, you won't be seeing anything for a while. I don't want to get too into this because people I know may read this and believe it or not I have a line I don't want to cross. But let's just say I lost sight of the "land down under" a couple of months ago.
So what's going on "south of the border" is anyone's guess. I look forward to seeing her again someday so we can evaluate the damage and align on our approach to the situation together.
So I have six dates to eat, some pineapple to cut, a TUMS and a Pepcid AC to take, a prenatal yoga class to go to, a birthing ball to bounce on, an Evening Primrose Oil supplement to swallow, some Red Raspberry Leaf tea to steep, an acupressure appointment to get to, some awkward sex to attempt right after I rub some Clary Sage essential diluted oil on my belly. No matter our age or gender, hugs are the universal language of love. Hugging our babies when they are sad, hurt or disappointed lets them know they are safe and cared for, and can help alleviate some of their emotional pain.
But research has shown that hugs do more than just provide comfort. In fact, children need this type of stimulation to grow stronger and happier. Studies show that hugs can enhance a child's physical growth by triggering the release of oxytocin —yes, that same hormone that your brain released to onset your labor and help you bond with your baby. When oxytocin levels in the blood are increased, several other hormone levels increase, too, promoting growth in cells, tissues and neurons.

Other studies have shown that the absence of a nurturing touch can cause the brain to suppress cell responses to these growth hormones. Plus, those hugs a child receives in their early years are also important for their emotional development. When a baby is born, they have about 50 trillion synapses the connection between two nerve cells in their brain—that's about times the number of stars in the Milky Way! This network of synapses grows rapidly during the first year and continues to do so up to the age of three when a child's brain will have trillion!

As a baby grows, more connections in the brain are added based on daily life. But not all of the synapses will remain as the child grows. Life experience will activate certain neurons, create new connections among them and strengthen existing connections—and unused connections eventually will be eliminated in a process called synaptic pruning.

During this pruning, the connections in the brain that are frequently used are preserved, and those that are not are eliminated. All to make the brain more efficient and boost brainpower. Research has found that it is important to expose a child's brain to positive stimulation in order to preserve the right connections. For example, if we consistently show a child love and care , those related connections in their brain will develop and strengthen over time.
