Comments Day #1

I would love to use this blog to get people thinking and to get people in touch with others who might be thinking along the same lines they are thinking--whew! Thus, I am naming Mondays "Comments Day." I will post a question each Monday and I encourage everyone who reads it to post an answer in the comments section. It would be awesome if you are a fellow blogger to allow access to your blogger profile and blog. Let's share some ideas folks!

My answer? Check the comments section, I don't want to spoil the question for anyone!

In an effort to keep things short, I wil say our top three family priorities are respect, challenge and joy. If we appraoch each day with those three ideas as our goals we try and receive and do great things.

Family priorities -- Loving, finding/following our passions, respect & mindfulness. Neat blog. I am fascinated that your daughter takes trapeze lessons -- fun!

My husband just called and I asked him what he thought our top 3 priorities as a family are and he said"I dunno". Not his fault, we've never thought and discussed it really. So we had a quick discussion and came up with this: I said I valued respect and having fun he said "what kind of parent is that?" and I said "one I would like." So then he said unconditional love and I agreed. Great topic Jen, thanks it has opened up dialogue for our family that probably would have given me a hard time to open--even though I think about it all the time. now I think ALL the boys and I will discuss it as a family.
