" Please let me be.
Please go away.
I am NOT going
to get up today!"
from "I am NOT going to get up today!"
A brother shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.
A Happy Family Is But An Earlier Heaven
Build me a cabin in Utah,Marry me a wife, catch rainbow trout,Have a bunch of kids who call me Pa, That must be what it's all about...
"Cleaning house while kids are still growing,
Is like shoveling snow, while it's still snowing."
Don't take life too seriously, nobody gets out alive anyways.
I see children as kites. You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground. You run with them until you're both breathless. They crash . . . you add a longer tail . . . you patch and comfort, adjust and teach. You watch them lifted by the wind and assure them that someday they'll fly.
If we wish away our laugh lines we wish away the memories that made them.
"Nobody were born to be parents, we only become one when we have children"...
note:Thus we learn along and commit mistakes with then until we wake up one day and be better. Ask forgiveness too on all your mistakes for children to learn better how to be parents someday.
Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind.... or forgotten.
Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.
sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart
The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes!
"The family is like fudge. Mostly sweet, with a few nuts".
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosum of my family.
A face without freckles
is like a night without stars!
A happy family
is but an earlier
A home without a grandmother is like an egg without salt
A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.........
And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind.
Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is to he can tell when he's really in trouble.
As the purse is emptied, the heart is filled.
Better one true friend than a hundred relatives.
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
Crazy is a relative term in my family!
Before you know it you will turn from 20 to 80
DYB BYB- Do your best, Be your best!
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Esteem a child as your teacher--and you will see humbling reflections of yourself.
Everyone needs their own spot.
Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts.
Families are like fudge,,mostly sweet with a few nuts.
Families fill our lives with happiness and laughter leaving us memories to treasure today and forever after
Family...it's about time.
Friends may come and go but family is a forever bond.
God has given us no greater blessing than that of belonging to a loving and loyal family - and it will be so, always and forever.
Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.
Great Minds Think Alike
Growing up happens in a blink of an eye... One day you're in diapers, the next day you're running around with your mom going to Soccer, Tae Kwon Do, Hip Hop dance, Ballet, Tap, Tumble, Tiny Tots, rehearsals, recitals, swim lessons, field trips, outings, play dates, vacations and everything else in between, Whew! Childhood sure is a lot of work!
Having Children Makes You Understand Why Some Animals Eat Their Young
Having someplace to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.
He who joins in sport with his own family will never be dull to strangers.
Home is the place where nobodies are somebodies and the great of the earth are ordinary people.
Human beings are the only creatures on earth that allow their children to come back home.
I OWE MY MOTHER
1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning."
2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."
3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL.
"If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"
4. My mother taught me LOGIC.
" Because I said so, ! that's why."
5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC.
"If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me."
6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT.
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident."
7. My mother taug...
If I'd known grandchildren were so much fun, I'd have had them first!
IF LIFE THROWS YOU LEMONS... MAKE LEMONADE
If you don't understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.
If you only have one smile give it to the people you love.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and sharing of pleasure.
In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create; by the memories you share; by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another; and by the hopes of the future you have as individuals and as a unit.
It took me a while to get that lesson, that it really is just about everyday experiences, teaching you, moment in, moment out, who you really are.
Less routine is more life.
Let the things you love be your escape.
Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.
Like their parents children learn lessons slowly as time goes by...be patient...don't give up on them...they will learn!!!
Listen to the Little Wife!
My aunts and uncles are one of a kind,
A little goofy but are quite a great find.
They like to play the same silly games,
And are always calling me strange little names.
They love to hug and kiss, tickle and squeeze,
And sometimes I even bounce on their knees.
I like it so much I can't help but grin
I know it's their hearts I'll surly win.
My Family is the color in my life...
without them I am color blind.
My kid brother was sent from heaven- they must like it quiet up there.
Nicole Eggert who was alongside Pamela Anderson on Baywatch lost weight after gaining 30 pounds due to a family tragedy. The death of her father devastated her and she turned to food gaining 30 pounds. It took Nicole about two years to pull herself together after her loss. She is not back to her former 90 pounds (she is 5’2”) but she lost a lot of weight and looks great. Eggert, a 37-year-old mother-of-one, looks happy and healthy.
Nicole joined the Celebrity Fit Club to lose the weight and the program was really about teamwork and doing actual Navy Seals training, which she said no one should be doing at her age.
Now in order to maintain her healthy weight, Ni...
No one can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries
Only a life lived for others is the life worthwhile.
Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger.
Our family tree
is blessed with thee
Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered by anybody to the country and to mankind is to bring up a family.
Quarrels never could last long
If on one side were all the wrong.
Simple moments are sometimes the best moments.
Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.
So much of what we know of love we learn at home.
Some children are a handful
because too seldom they are an armful.
Some family trees bear an enormous crop of nuts.
Starting then, continuing today, Family never goes out of style, only changing to the trends of the age.
Surrounded by family, Surrounded by Love
The best school of discipline is home. Family life is God's own method of training the young.
The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.
The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
The giving of love is an education in itself.
The greatest thing a FATHER can do to his children, is to love their mother.
The Love We Give Away is the only Love we Keep.
The more you laugh, the longer you live
The Only Difference Between the Love of a Stepmother and the Love of a Mother is the Pain of Childbirth
The only exercise some people get is jumping to conclusions, running down their friends, side-stepping responsibility, and pushing their luck!
The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I
know that works is the FAMILY.
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
There is no such thing as "fun for the whole family."
There is no vocabulary
For the love within a family, love that's lived in
But not looked at, love within which
All else is seen, the love within which
All other loves find speech.
This love is silent.
There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.
They... threw themselves into the interests of the rest, but each plowed his or her own furrow. Their thoughts, their little passions and hopes and desires, all ran along separate lines. Family life is like this - animated, but collateral. ~Rose Macaulay
Those gasps of astonishment, those shrieks of pleasure, those sighs of delight, lost long ago when your children grew wise and wordly ~ are suddenly given back to you by your grandchildren. What seems to be the same small hands clutch yours, dragging you from one excitement to another ~ "Look! Oh, look! come ON!"
time is precious...waste it wisely
To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.
To the world your just one person but to one person you could mean the world
Traditions are built in the home with family!
Traditions are group efforts to keep the unexpected from happening.
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
Una casa sin hijos es una colmena sin abejas
We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.
We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.
We don't love the people we love because they are perfect. We love them because they are.
WE DON'T REMEMBER DAYS WE REMEMBER MOMENTS
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
When you were small and just a touch away, I covered you with blankets against the cold night air. But now that you are tall and out of reach, I fold my hands and cover you with prayer.
Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our
attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.
You can be boring and tedious with sisters, whereas you have to put on a good face with friends.
You can Frown That A Rose Has Thorns
You Can Rejoice That Thorns Have Roses
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you as you are to them.
You may be only one person in the world...but you may be the world to one person.
