Family Reunion Quotes To Live By - Part 1

Wondering how to empower the family? Here are some tried, tested and true words to live by.

My granddaughter licked her candy apple until it was oozing with spittle. She then pushed the dripping wet treat to my mouth. About to say "no thank you sweety" I suddenly realized that I would miss out on an ideal opportunity to show deep gratitude and appreciation for her creative expression of affection through giving. I immediately thanked her and took a lick and a bite of the apple. Then I hugged her and kissed her on the cheek. Needless to say, she shared her sticky treat right down to the last bite. Lesson learned!

Did you know that creative expressions of innocent filial affection teach your child the value of kindness, giving and gratitude? We teach our children how to be considerate and thoughtful by example. In turn, they develop a sense of responsibility based on appreciation and gratitude for what you give them including all your hard work. They grow up to be more supportive and are often there when you need them.

Spread the word. Have a family reunion. Teach the younger generation how to creatively express gratitude and appreciation and show others how to graciously accept.  It will go a long way toward building up the household and empowering the family.

Learn the simple steps of planning your reunion.
