Bringing The Family Together
"The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It."
I'm a mother and depending who is calling me, I am mom, mama or marmee. One of the things I love most about being a mom are the many opportunities for teaching moments. One of our favorite sayings in our home is "No Empty Chairs". It simply means we are a family and we are in this together. We all have a responsibility to care and watch out for each other. We want a complete family, everyone accounted for, no lost sheep.
What anticipations await us when we come home?I have fond memories of coming home from elementary school. Mama would be at the dining room table planning our family night. We were excited to contribute to the 'program'. I recently found a little red, spiral notebook that I kept with the minutes of our family night programs. I don't remember if I was assigned to be the secretary or I appointed myself to the position, but it was nostalgic reading my childish handwriting of the nights events.
