Keeping it positive

It's been one of those weeks. Thoughts going through my mind that aren't particularly productive and that, if put into words, would be a poor example for anyone who was looking at me to do the right thing. I've told my kids many times: We cannot always control our thoughts and the things that cross our minds, but we can control what crosses our lips and how we choose to act - or not act - upon them.

Yet all that negativity is washed away when I see this photograph of my son and daughter: those crazy, spontaneous, wonderful kids who can put it all in perspective with one goofy pose.

Thanks darlin's.....for reminding me what - and who - is absolutely perfect in my life.

You have very attractive children....even in a silly pose! I love what you are saying about our thoughts and our actions......I know some people I can relay that to!

In a family, all members keep each other on track, especially now that the children are older. Some days we parent, some day's we parent but they parent us more.

I remember being told if I couldn't say something nice not to say anything. Though we all need to "vent" sometimes, I have a hard time not feeling guilty if I don't live up to that one.
