3 Questions for a Happier Family

“What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” – George Eliot

Hello Everyone!

I know that every one of us desires to have a family where everybody are in a good terms with each other. The thing is no family is ever perfect. Every once in a while, we get mad at each other, we fight, and we say things (we often do not mean) to hurt each other. But the good thing is we can always do something to improve our relationship with everyone in the family.

When you get the chance to sit down and talk to your spouse, partner, children, or siblings today- I would like to encourage  you to ask them these questions (I learned these questions from a conference that I and my hubby attended together):

  1. Is there anything that you need from me that you have not gotten yet? 

  2. Is there anything that I have done to hurt your feelings that I need to apologize for?

  3. What can I do to be a better Spouse/Partner/Mother/Father/Brother/Sister to you?

If we ask these questions more often, and make sure that we act on them, I can guarantee you that it will make a difference in our relationship with our family. 🙂

Happy weekend everyone! Make sure to squeeze in your schedule some quality family time!

  1. I think this is lovely. My son is 20, but i can tell when he needs me and I’ll just say… ‘you feel like talking?’ Because with his personality, he just needs an invitation to open up. He’s not going to without one. 🙂

    1. That says a lot about what kind of mom you are to your son Nikki! I believe that the best mothers do not need words to know if their children needs them just by observing their body language…You’re a very good mom for being like that Nikki! 😊
