I "met" Kristi of Finding Ninee through the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop. I immediately liked her--we shared a name, after all! I found her to be compassionate and determined in her role as mom to Tucker. I knew about her Finish the Sentence Fridays, but I don't know why I haven't joined in before now. When I saw today's prompt, though, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about.
The world really needs more strong families. As the basic unit of society, families determine the outcome of nations. Many of the ills of the world could be prevented and/or alleviated through functional, supportive families.
The Family: A Proclamation to the World was written 20 years ago. At the time, I did not find the proclamation controversial. Now, there are loud voices opposing the ideas presented in that document. I respect the right of others to disagree, but I also stand in firm support of The Family: A Proclamation to the World.
As families make families a priority, harmony and love increase. Of course, children and parents are not perfect, and there will always be room for improvement, but when diligent effort is given to strengthening families, blessings will follow.
I love that quote above. One simple act might not seem like much, but when taken over and over again, the cumulative effect can be beautiful.
And now, it's time for me to go spend time with my family. Won't you go do something with yours, too?
Thanks for families!
