January 22, is Celebration of Life Day. The day in which we honor all those who bring joy and happiness in our life. Most likely, for most of us, that will be our family. Especially our grandchildren and children. Children, especially in their teenage years are challenging but they are our children — a precious gift from God. So even though today is the coldest day of this season so far, celebrate it with your children with great happiness and joy. In the hustle and bustle of making a living, advancing in life and providing the very best for our children ironically, we neglect to spend quality time with them. Studies tell us that an average father spends less than 5 minutes a day listening to or having a meaningful conversation with his child. We are too busy
with too many things and neglect the most important in life. Parents take time to think about his statement, “The best inheritance a parent can give to his/her children is a few minutes of one’s time each day.” What are you spending your time on today? How much time are you giving to people that actually matter in your life? Celebrate your life today by spending more time with the ones that matter the most to you, your children. Our children are like mirrors — they reflect our attitudes in life. If we spend time with our children, they will, in turn, spend time with their children. If we develop a proper attitude in life, it will be transferred to our children and thus we will give rise to a generation that will be a blessing. So don’t feed your children junk ideas, sour opinions, rotten theology, poison feelings, or wilted opinions (the TV will do that for you). Instead, feed your children with the best and most positive thoughts and they too will celebrate life and call you blessed.
