A few years ago I found this advice at a scrapbook store on a sticker. I never did get it in a scrapbook, but rather I stuck it on the face of my cupboard doors. I liked it , it reminded me of what's important :-) I thought maybe you would enjoy it also.



How To Love Your family

TEACH KINDNESS... share feelings... Make
Loving SAFE ... dress up for
tea... HAVE PEANUT
BUTTER PICNICS... don't
yell... TANGO IN THE
MOONLIGHT... wish upon a
star... SURPRISE THEM WITH
ICECREAM... listen... PLANT
JELLY BEANS IN YOUR
GARDEN... sing Jesus Loves
Me out loud with joy... PLAN
A TRIP TO THE MOON... cry
during movies...
ENCOURAGE SILLY... carry
lots of band-aids... TAKE
DAFFODILS TO
GRANDMA... laugh at
yourself... SHARE A
WISHBONE... be kind
to one another... MAKE
HAPPY FACE PANCAKES...
celebrate everything... RIDE
BICYCLES INTO THE
SUNSET...feel their aches...
CELEBRATE THEIR JOYS...
say yes as often as possible...
WHISPER SECRETS...handle
with TLC... teach them to reach
for the stars...LOVE
THEM...learn from them...
BE THERE...BE THERE...
BE THERE.

Thanks for sharing! I love it! Beautiful thoughts! I use to scrapbook, but now I like to put all my thoughts and pictures on my family blog! Have a great week! We are waiting for my son to receive his mission call in the next few weeks! I'm so excited! :)

I love it, I have one that I copied off a roll of paper towel. I'll have to pull it out and post it sometime. You are such an inspiration to me!

It is a wonderful thought. Families are the best! I just pulled out my rusty scrapbooking supplies this morning to make a card for a Pay It Forward gift!

Sometimes I wish I could go back and enjoy the kids a little more. I was always so busy and it goes by so quick. Love that message. Mimi
