Letter from the Editor, May 2003
By Kara L.C. Jones

The issue is more than a little late this month -- but at least I posted within the actual month of May! Sorry. Mother's Day always stinks and, well, we've just been doing so much to make all the end meet around here. But regardless of posting late, I do think the issue is an awesome one, full of helpful information.

Of course the resounding theme was Mother's Day -- with an eye toward Father's Day coming up in June. I'm still posting a bit of information to rally for peace -- like that article about Julia Ward Howe who founded Mother's Day to begin with as a cry of grief and demand for peace. And there is so much information this issue about how to handle the tough time, how to communicate with others about what you feel during these times and trying "holidays" -- you are not alone!!

Hope you'll read through and find something that helps you hang on just a bit. Promise to be back next month with even more for you. And maybe we'll be seeing you at the MISS Conference in a couple days!

Miracles to you,

Kara L.C. Jones, Dakota's Mommy
