New Year Day #14

The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have past at home in the bosom of my family.

Thomas Jefferson

A happy family life is the essence of all round happiness. Even though my children are all grown and have children of their own, family is still a top priority in my life.  They give my life meaning and very often are my motivation for doing most of what I do.  Having a large family is a blessing.  There is always something going on and much to do  and celebrate too.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. 

Earl Nightingale

My family inspires me to strive to do more and enjoy life regardless of of what else may be going on.  We are always there for each other and help out when needed.   In between hardships, and illness there has been a lot of laughter and a lot of joy.  

Never forget the power of family and cherish every moment you have with them.

there is
lasting love,
there is 
a family.

It is for sure families for the most part generate happiness and a great time when possible to get together. The older you get the more important those times are.

I'm growing so impatient to begin the next chapter of our lives that I forget to "be happy now." Like Jack said, the older (I) get the more important those times are!


family is important. you are lucky you have a large one to share things with.
