Lessons from Unlikely Places to Nourish You in Troubled Times
  • By Amelia Jo Mitchell Psy D.

We are living in troubled times. Lest we forget, we are bombarded daily with updates and reminders of unemployment, economic worries, threats of terrorism, and war by mass media, political rhetoric, and marketing wizards who are serving their own agendas. As a citizen, mother, and psychologist who has spent hours counseling individuals and couples, I am as concerned as you are.

How we share it determines the world in which we live and what we pass on to future generations.

I strive to become more aware of the lessons life presents to me and to recognize the value of trying to incorporate them into my daily living. Life is teaching you in the same manner. My hope is that

Lemon Pie invites you to reconsider your own life lessons, so when you lay your head down at night, you can say with a sigh, "I am content."
