Sharing with students in need for back-to-school

Sharing with students in need for back-to-school

It was an honor to share our #notestoselfsocks with Cindy and Nancy from The Olathe Public Schools Foundation. These socks and the positive messages will be gifted to some of the most vulnerable students in our area when they return to school. We hope that these students realize how awesome they are and how bright their future is. #wordsmakeallthedifference Below is a letter that we received the next day from Cindy: Dear Laura and team, I made the decision to store the boxes in my office, so that I could keep track and develop the plan to distribute the socks in an organized...

A Personal Story - Stole of Gratitude

A Personal Story - Stole of Gratitude

A personal story about how #wordsmakeallthedifference - After our daughter's college graduation last weekend, positive words brought me to happy tears. Elaine shared with us that students can wear a blue 'stole of gratitude' during graduation, which a student may later present to someone who has made a difference in their life. Elaine then presented it to me and shared why she was giving it to me. I was so honored and impacted by her kind words. I think about the importance of words daily, and Elaine’s words meant the world to me! Thank you, Elaine for reminding me that ‘words...

Our cat, Grace Mary Schmidt

Our cat, Grace Mary Schmidt

I’m sharing my thoughts today in remembrance of a good friend of our family: our cat Grace Mary Schmidt. None of us knew her precise age but our best guess was 17. Our daughter, Elaine, named her and included ‘Zebra’ as one of her many middle names. Gracie was very independent, but was always there when someone needed her. When Elaine’s wisdom teeth were removed, Gracie sat atop the couch’s armrest, where Elaine recovered. Whenever I was sad, Gracie would always seem to be there at the right time and place to sit with me and comfort me. I don’t...
