Wanting to Be Six Again

Wanting to Be Six Again


Dear Readers,

There’s a joke told about a considerate husband who wanted to celebrate his wife’s upcoming birthday in a special way, and so he asked her what she'd like.

“I’d love to be 6 again,” she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he woke her at the crack of dawn and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every scary rollercoaster!

Five hours later, staggering out of the theme park, her head was reeling and her stomach was upside-down. They went straight to a kid-friendly, fast-food eatery where her husband ordered her slices of pizza, extra fries smothered in ketchup and a creamy chocolate shake.

Finally, wobbling home, the wife collapses on the couch as her husband endearingly asks, “Well, dear, what was it like being 6 again?”

With only one eye half-open, she murmurs, “I meant my dress size!”

This week at, we are focusing on youth. That doesn’t mean that we’re trying to be 6 years old again, but we do try to find the elixir to youth. We also look at how to teach our youth to have a growth mindset. As well, we look at learning from children what they intuitively know that sometimes we adults tend to forget (or neglect). We also explore seven awesome prayers that women say, some of them revolving around our children.

In the spirit of exploring youthfulness, we have even provided you with something that’s really popular nowadays: adult coloring pages. Discover your own inner creativity as you steep in bright colors and contemplate the deep message behind this image. Please don’t forget to let us know if you enjoyed the activity.

So this week, let’s tap into our inner youth—figuratively, if not literally.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Often we need a break from our daily routine. A pause from life to help us appreciate life.

A little pat on the back to let us know when we're on track. A word of encouragement to help us through those bleak moments and difficult days.

Sometimes, we just yearn for some friendship and camaraderie, someone to share our heart with. And sometimes we need a little direction from someone who's been there.

So, take a short pause from the busyness of your day and join Chana Weisberg for a cup of coffee.
