Dirty Dishes

Sometimes, during the daily hustle and bustle to get through our day, we forget those who are nearest, dearest and most important to us. We lose track of our priorities. It happens.

Example: When your child (or spouse etc.) wakes up in the morning, be sure to smile at them and say “hi!” When you get home from work or when they come home after school, be sure to stop what your are doing for a minute, smile at them and say “hi”, again, when you see ‘em. Don’t force it but let it come naturally and honestly from the heart. Let them know and make them feel (it) that they are the most important part of your life (hopefully they are); least of all, make them feel that they are more important than the “dirty dishes”!

Very well said Jon. I entered a household where, in the mornings, all hell reigned, anger was swift, screaming was dominant, physical exertion of expression of frustration knocked holes in the families consciousness of themselves. This was untenable and a horrible way to start a day, I forced it to change, outlawed that behaviour, at first it was hard to break habits, but the love that truly did exist in and between members, rose up and took back the mornings, and so, the days themselves.

Good post Jon. My best to you and yours.
