Life Lessons

Filed under: Kids

From one parent to another - what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?

Here are some of mine:

To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be loved.

To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.

To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.

To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love, and it can take many years to heal them.

To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.

To learn that there are people who love them dearly, but simply have not yet learned
how to express or show their feelings.

To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently.

To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.

3 kids - 3 schools

Filed under: Kids

Having 3 kids, 2 in elementary school and 1 in high school, all going to 3 different schools makes life very challenging these days. We are an organized family, but life just seems to get busier and busier.

I am wondering who may have a suggestion on things they do to keep themselves, or should I say their kids organized. I would love to hear your most favorite tid-bit, or suggestion. Nothing is too far out…

So tell me, what is your favorite secret?
