motherhood (click to watch)

Happy Mother's Day
I created a short (3 min.) video a few years back. It was a beautiful way for me to express the story of motherhood which I put to music. Whether you are a new mom or a seasoned grandma, you will connect with the message. Being a mom is never ending but the rewards are aplenty. SHARE with the loved ones in your life. If you're a mom watching this...I salute you and all the jobs, both big and little, that you do everyday. You are appreciated. Enjoy this on Mother's Day...or any day. I hope you enjoy it. I'll be getting a gets me every time. xoxo Melissa πŸ’‹

April is School Librarian Month

SCHOOL LIBRARIANS ROCK!πŸ’– Yep, I'm a school librarian and I love helping readers & inquisitive minds. The library is a magical place where learning never ends! To my fellow Book Babes out there who also work in the hub of the school, you change lives for the better. Keep empowering young minds and BRAVO on a job well done πŸ’‹

Typical Tuesday?...or is it?

Fell in love with this commercial. Starting today fresh. Character counts in who we are and what we do. Be a role model & call me typical any day. Check it out:
