Mondays with Mrs. Sparkles: Time for Mom and Dad

Today I am thinking about a conversation I had this weekend with a friend who completed both the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon & miniMarathon. Desperately seeking some “me” time, she began training through her local YMCA in January. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her recount her training regime and empathized with her need to have an hour to herself, feeling the rhythm of her feet pounding the pavement and escaping to the world between her and her ipod.


In this season of remembering parents, I would like to implore parents all over Louisville to find some time to recharge their batteries. When considering your options, please consider the benefits of exercising your creativity muscles. Feel the gratification of working with your hands on a project that will last a lifetime.
