“The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege.” ~ Charles Kuralt

As Jim Rohn said, "Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing."

“Bringing up a family should be an adventure, not an anxious discipline in which everybody is constantly graded for performance.” ~ Milton R. Saperstein

And Gail Lumet Buckley: "Family faces are magic mirrors looking at people who belong to us - we see the past, present, and future."

“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” ~ Barbara Bush

It's our loved ones that matter most in the world, so it's such a shame if we focus exclusively on work and neglect our home, especially if that is done to avoid taking responsibility for relationship problems within the family.

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible -- the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.” ~ Virginia Satir

There's nothing like the security of an understanding and empathic ear, and it's even more special when that can be found within the family. As Eva Burrows says, "In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony."
“The heart is to the body as the family is to the soul.” ~ Rick Beneteau

Rick Beneteau further expresses...
“If I die tonight in my sleep:
Let me have hugged and told my children that I love them;
Let me have told my mother how much she is loved and appreciated;
Let me have helped a friend or better, a stranger;
Let me have worked very hard these past hours in the name of my personal progress; and,
Let me have gone to sleep with the knowledge that I did the very best I could do today.”
