Matt and I created a family motto when we were first married and I still LOVE it!
It is quite long because we had so many things that were important to us and it is also like a mission statement to motivate us when things get tough.
Our union will be of great love.
We provide for each other's continued development.
We organise and direct our lives to give us joy and happiness.
We exercise wisdom in what we choose to eat, read, see and do.
We celebrate and participate in uplifting family traditions.
We make our house, a place to we want to come home to.
We wisely use time, talents and resources to bless others
We serve worthy purposes in society
We hope to leave a legacy of the strength and importance of families.
There are so many wonderful treasures packed into those words and I think I will have to do a few more posts to share what they mean to us and some of the things we have to do live up to this motto.
I really need to get myself organised and put it up on our wall, framed and looking lovely. It really is worth the effort.
