Just Be Nice

My second child graduated from high school this month.  It’s amazing how time flies. Kids sure do grow fast.  I hope you can enjoy each and every day with your little ones.

Occasions like these make me reflect a bit on my role as a Mom, daughter, sister, wife and friend.  I really try to be a good person and most importantly to be a good role model for my 3 children.  I realize I am far from perfect but just try to do my best as best I can.

This weekend I met up with 5 of my Junior High girlfriends.  These 5 ladies are special friends.  There truly is something special about spending time with friends that have known you for a very long time…we are very comfortable with each other and share so many of the same values.  They are all good role models for me on how to be a good friend, because they have always been a good friend to me.

Girlfriends are important.  I am grateful for mine.

We also had a family party for Kevin to celebrate his high school accomplishments.  As my son Kevin embarks on his life’s journey outside our home, I think about some of the life lessons I have tried to teach him not by what I say, but more on how I life my life.  After all, actions speak louder than words, right?

We are all works in progress and I do believe that most people do the best they can.

My sister, Trisha sent this quote to me and I thought I would share it with you.  As one of the most important life lessons I believe is… Think before you speak.  It’s often NOT what you say, but how you say it that is important too!

So as you parent your little ones, show love to your partner, share memories with your sibling, and chat with your friends….remember to think before you speak…It’s easier and nicer being inspiring, helpful, truthful and kind.

Have a nice week!
