Have you ever looked at those families and thought “Wow, they have it all together?” Me neither. I bet they just “look” like they have it together, right? I bet they too get into a cramped vehicle (like the one I am trying to love but still dislike) and experience untold horrors similar to the told ones that we experienced recently on our way to light up night!
Ok, so let’s pretend, for the sake of this post, that they drive a roomy 8 seater vehicle, don’t have kids hurling insults in the back seat and really do have it together. In that case, I can guarantee that The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families is in their library arsenal.
This book is awesome and practical. It has things that the average Joe can actually do. It is filled with easy to understand and common sense ideas, such as the emotional bank account, and creating a family mission statement. He talks about the importance of family communication, togetherness and one on one time. Your basic stuff that is easily overlooked.
After my Pap died I realized that there was still so much I didn’t know about him…so much time that I still needed to spend and invest…so many questions still to be asked that will remain unanswered.
Life moves fast. Let’s make friends with effectiveness and make our time count.
