Golly Gump!
Golly Gump!
05/13/2015


Hello Dr. Laura! 

Recently you mentioned Deryk's favorite book growing up was "Golly Gump Swallowed a Fly." I immediately ordered it online. My 1.5 year old son's favorite activity is to read books with me, all day long. Because of your advice over 10+ years of listening, I am able to do that. 

I am a stay-at-home mom and cherish every moment of it. I wake up every day at 4am to work from home. And I am done working when my son wakes up. That way we are able to spend all day learning, laughing, and playing. It can be exhausting, I won't lie, but it's worth every minute. Ok, I'll admit it, most days I nap when my son does, and that way I am able to keep up. I will add I chose kindly and treat kindly my very wonderful husband of nearly 4 years. I am his girlfriend EVERY DAY. Your advice, once digested, is not that difficult. The message is rather simple really. But I can see how hurdles can appear for some. Overanalyzing, being critical, putting too much stock in our own feelings than those of others, it is all too easy to mess up. But in the end, I have realized with your help, that what you reap, you sow. Be kind. Be honest. Be present. And the rest seems to fall into place. 

Thank you so much Dr. Laura. You are a blessing. Now time to go read! 

Cheers, 

Erin
