Introducing Wisdom for Wednesdays

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Side note: The calf in the featured image shown with this post on the homepage and blog has absolutely nothing to do with this post… but isn’t he cute???

Another side note: This is what happens when I try to plan ahead and schedule a post… my Wednesday post accidentally goes out on Tuesday!!! Aargh… I’ll get the hang of this!

I wanted to drop by with a little quote to think on, with some of my own thoughts. as well… maybe this will become a weekly occurrence?

“There is no place in the world where the amenities of courtesy should be so carefully maintained as in the home.”

– J.R. Miller, The Family

Ouch.

How is it that the people we love most are so often the people we treat the worst? Home is where we feel comfortable, let down our guard, be ourselves…

Are we seriously, at our core, who we are at home when the irritations set in?

Yes.

At home, am I consistently the person I want to be?

No.

Should this change?

YES!!!

I want to encourage you to do something with me today. Let’s be more conscious of the person we are being at home. (You’re probably spending a lot more time with your family right now than usual… what a great opportunity!)

Let’s ask ourselves…

Are we setting down our phones to truly listen to what our family members have to say?

Are we taking time that we could spend on ourselves and spending it on family?

Are we keeping our fingers on the pulse of our family members’ hearts… are they doing okay? Do they need a hug? A kind word? A chat? Some whipped cream? (Just sayin’…)

The world is built on the foundation that is laid in our homes. No matter what role we have in our family (as a spouse, parent, sibling, son or daughter), we all have the responsibility of filling that role as well as we can.

Let’s go ahead and love on our families, today and forever… always treating them like the treasured souls they are!
