Marriage & Family

 As I was blog surfing I ran across this post ! I really liked it so wanted to share it with all who read my blog. As far as the video....I had never heard this song before, the words are great ! Take time to listen !    Making time for family is so important!  Dan made a huge decision to leave a pretty good paying job about 10 years ago.  He was gone all the time, so he thought it was more important to be home and be there for our kids.  It was a huge sacrifice financially and we may not have been able to give our kids everything they wanted, lots of clothes, fancy house, pay for their cell phones and buy them the fancy tennis shoes unless they pitched in....ect.  But one thing I know for sure is we gave them  "us".  It has been hard but I know we will never look back and wish we had given our kids more stuff instead of us.  Time...the time we give our families is way more important than all the stuff !

"What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility." --Leo Tolstoy'

"The first duty of love is to listen." --Paul Tillich

  1. Good for you. I agree nothing can beat the time you give your children. More important than anything you can buy them. It looks like it paid off! You have a beautiful family and you all seem so close.
