life lessons for my kids

be a person of your word.  you don't have to be rich, or powerful, or the best at everything, but always, always be a person of your word

remember God.  He led you to where you are.  He will lead you further.  and He will never leave your side or betray you

never wear the same underwear two days in a row

be wary of people who start sentences with "i always" and "i never"  because they don't and they do

you can stretch the amount of cooked mince in a pot if you add a small handful of jungle oats

if you want true loyalty, buy a dog

brush your teeth at least twice a day

don't make promises you don't intend to keep.  to anyone 

long socks and short shorts look daft on guys.  i promise

make every day count at school.  because it does in the long run

don't let anyone tell you that you have to like olives.  you don't

big or small.  lies are lies. 

when a young guy starts a sentence with "but if you loved me" ..... get out.  fast.  for good. 

having several drinks out of a "fishbowl" is usually not a good idea

respect people around you.  friends. colleagues. whatever.  just do. 

never wear a speedo after you reach 8 years of age.  serious. 

don't take stuff that doesn't belong to you.  ever.  

even if something doesn't end happily ever after, if it taught you something then that's ok

whatever you decide to be in life, be the best at it that you can be

have a good heart.  worry about those less fortunate and do something for them.  

be the kind of person that you would want to be good friends with 

make your bed 

never hide from past mistakes.  learn.  and move on 

feed your dog every day 

the people you keep close to your heart on your best days are the ones who stayed on the worst ones

in difficult times remember, one day when you can tell the story without crying, you have healed

never count your wealth by the amount of money you have in the bank 

never cut your own fringe 

plan ahead ...... it was not raining when Noah built the Ark (thanks Sister Wink)

never be afraid to tell people you love them

and hug your mom ..... often 

till next time, 
c'est la vie xxxx
