TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL!

Good Morning Foodies!

There are some FACTS OF LIFE that are undeniable, especially when it comes to raising your children. Probably the hardest job a person can ever have, but one of the most rewarding! As my GRANDMOTHER use to say, “YOU KNOW EVEN A WIND-UP CLOCK COMES WITH DIRECTIONS! HOW TO RAISE CHILDREN—NOT SO MUCH!” Yes, there are a million books, videos, lectures, etc. where someone can try to impose their ideas on how to accomplish this job, but trust me each household is unique!

Here are some of the things that I think HUBBY and I tried to agree on when rearing our PEEPS!
-Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so when they grow-up they will know the value of things, not the price.
-The one who loves you will never leave you because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find one reason to hold on.
I know some of the things I have learn from my parents and grandparents about measuring life sort of go like this:
-If you have a $300 or $30 watch—THEY BOTH TELL THE SAME TIME!
-If you carry $300 or $30 in a wallet/handbag—THE AMOUNT OF MONEY INSIDE IS THE SAME.
-If you drink a bottle of $300 or $30 wine—THE HANGOVER WILL BE THE SAME.
-If you fly first or economy class, and if the plane goes down—WE ALL GO DOWN AND WE ALL REACH THE SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME!
The bottom line here is that CHALLENGES are what make LIFE interesting. How you HANDLE them makes LIFE MEANINGFUL!

I want to wish my daughter, CELESTE and her HUBBY-JOE, a very HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Cannot believe it has been ten years already! Not only did they have a fabulous wedding and make her parents so happy but has given us the two most beautiful GRAND PEEPS-SOPHIA AND GABRIELLE! LIFE IS GOOD! HOPE YOU HAVE A VERY BLESSED AND HAPPY DAY! ENJOY EACH OTHER AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!
Oh yes, and if you forgot today is the lovely TAX DAY! UGH!

Have a safe and productive weekend!
