This post is part of the Strong Families Mama’s Day celebration. We asked our bloggers to talk about what makes their family strong.
Love, hard work, and laughter are my ingredients for my strong family.
One of my favorite quotes is “Do all things with love.” Don’t act out of hate, don’t speak out of anger, and never treat someone in a way you would not want to be treated. My daughter and I follow those rules daily and go out of our way to spread out unconditional love with others too. Its important to me that my daughter knows the power of love and knows I love her unconditionally and isn’t afraid to express her unconditional love to others either.
Second, with hard work anything is possible, including having a happy, healthy, loving family. With a little dedication, commitment, and unconditional love my family has blossomed. Lastly, and most importantly laugh it off. My daughter and I find ourselves laughing at each other through out the day; telling jokes, watching funny dog videos on you tube, or having tickle fights. Laughter is an important part of lives and keeps our family light hearted, easy going, and fun!
