Life is fragile.
Tragedies happen in the blink of an eye. Tonight I am thankful for my family making it through a really tough year. It’s hard parenting teenagers! You hope that you have taught them well, but the world is out there just waiting to hurt them and drag them down.
Some words to live by that help our family get through the tough times:
Hug your kids and your spouse unabashedly.
Show the ones you love that they are important to you. Tell them you love them every day.
Treat everyone with respect…the way you would want to be treated.
Help one another.
Encourage each other.
Have an attitude of gratitude.
Love unconditionally…and hold on to the hope the future holds something brighter if you are going through a tough time.
Work at having a healthy family both physically and emotionally and the curveballs that life throws at you will hopefully seem less daunting.
Support one another in the dark times…and celebrate the joys, however small or fleeting.
