Our Family Matters

There are lots of new things happening around here. I’ve heard so much and spoken so much about the sandwich generation. I can tell you now, that I am living smack dab in the middle of it. Like many of you, my aging parents are starting to need us more and more. We have made the decision to have them live here with us. We are thrilled to be able to help them, and are looking forward to our kids having the opportunity to get to know them in a different dynamic. It’s definitely an adjustment for all of us, especially for my parents; it has me thinking about my own future, and what it will hold for me and my husband. I am incredibly proud and grateful for my children and husband, who have been so openminded about the changes, and have stepped up to the plate in every area imaginable. It’s difficult to imagine ourselves aging and needed support.
However, the way our family has come together during this transitional period has me optimistic that when my time comes, I will never have to worry about my children looking after me. I wish you and your family an abundance of health, happiness, and prosperity in 2019. I look forward to connecting with you in the community.

After a very difficult life-stage, she was forced to re-invent herself, personally and professionally. Family Matters Magazine was part of an effort to combine all of her passions into a new career/business opportunity. Susana strives to balance family and work to the best of her ability. Although her children are grown, she still puts focus on daily home-cooked meals and family dinners at the table, almost every night. Being at a later stage of parenthood, she is learning to take more time to explore her own interests and is enjoying more time with her husband as their children become more independent. Professionally, Susana has partnered up in various community projects including The Mom Show. She enjoys encouraging mothers to recognize their potential, as women, outside of motherhood. Ninjamom is personal project that is in it's early stages. It is a movement to empower mothers to practice self-love and self-care without the guilt.
