Dear Boys...

As a Mom I always wonder, am I teaching my kids what they need to know to be well rounded and good, strong, loving men. I know they are very young, but as I reflect, the list below are a few of many essential qualities I hope to teach them .

~ Love one another, through thick or thin
~ Respect authority, ladies, family, friends, elders, and belongings
~ If we hurt each other, always apologize and give a hug
~ Education is important and essential
~ Family is everything, cherish our family
~ We will love you unconditionally
~ You can tell us anything
~ With all decisions, there are always consequences
~ We always help our family and friends
~ Remember you manners
~ Pray
~ Dream, but realize nothing is accomplished without hard work
~ Smile and have fun!!
~ Everyday we are making memories
~ You only have one life to live - live it to the fullest, you'll make mistakes, you will make successes, but leave a legacy you can be proud of!
