Peace Begins at Home

Remember me? I used to blog here.

Let’s face it, I have neglected my blog over the course of the past few weeks. It wasn’t intentional and I have truly missed sharing my thoughts and photos with all of you each day. Life, it seems, has swept me away into a dizzying whirlwind of to do’s and obligations. I’m actually blogging from my phone while sitting in my office, if that gives you any indication of the state of my blogging goals. But I’m readjusting the sails, so to speak, and I’m going to try harder to spend time nurturing my precious and worthy outlet–my blog.

A single moment out of my crazy and hectic morning stopped me in my tracks, reminding me to start looking at the big picture.

I always put notes in the boys’ lunch boxes each day. This morning I found that Little Man had also decided to write a note for his brother, and he placed it next to mine. Looks like Big Brother will get a double greeting today.

Such a small act of kindness that speaks more profoundly than words ever could.

I mused to myself that I must be at least doing something right in this crazy and chaotic season of my life. And then it struck me that today is the International Day of Peace. And you know what? I had a thought.

Peace begins at home.

It’s not something you teach, but something you live. It’s not something you have, it’s something you are. So live it and pass it on.

    So true! If you don’t have peace in your heart, you can’t have peace at home, and if you don’t have peace at home, you won’t have it away from home. Great thought for the day! You were missed! – Kaye
