New Year Resolutions And Family Reunions

"Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. Plan to make it a good one."

"This year I will prioritize family over all others."

"This year I will laugh more. "

"This year I will plan a financial strategy to secure my children's future"

"This year I will bring together the entire family and celebrate us."

How can you accomplish all the above this year? Believe it or not, new year resolutions and family reunions have a lot in common. What? think about it. Family reunions are a time to acknowledge and award members who have or are on their way to making important contributions to society. It is a time to listen to the wisdom of the elders. It is a time to celebrate accomplishments. It is a time to take stock in spiritual advancement. It is a time to play, laugh and rejuvenate.  Family members don't hesitate to remind you of previous resolutions and goals and inquire about your progress.  Most of all, reunions are just plain fun.

Remember that family reunions can give children a sense of identity, camaraderie and a compass to a more promising and productive future.
