Mindful Mondays #8 Back to Family Time

“It didn’t matter how big our house was; it mattered that there was love in it.” –Peter Buffett

Yesterday, my husband and I recorded our first Walt Life YouTube video. Making

home movies are something that we have both done throughout our lives. However now, we were in unchartered territory with this subscription box review. When I was younger, I was quite the performer for the camera. Back then the only people who saw those movies, were my family and friends. Since our video is on YouTube, the whole world can see us. I’ve gone solo with three different YouTube videos. For the first few moments of my video, it’s still a bit nerve racking! By co-starring together, it definitely calmed our nerves, but the best present we received wasn’t in the box. It was making new memories! Laughing, rather than worrying about certain circumstances, has become a natural thing for the both of us.

This past spring, I blogged about ways to transform your home into a getaway.

Gather the family together before school or work begins! Of course, you know your clan the best, as well as what kind of activities they like. Until you make your own list, feel free to grab some ideas I came up with:

· Make a silly home video with your phone, then watch it together.

· Sign up for a subscription box: There are dozens of different kinds out there to get. Lots of them have decent prices!

· Have a board game night once a week: I grew up doing this with my family. I have family in town that is passing the tradition on to their child. I love this idea!

· Turn off the TV and take time to talk to each other.

· Start your family tree.

· Start a family garden, whether it be for vegetables, herbs, or flowers!

· Create a new healthy recipe from scratch

Family does not always mean blood relation. I have lots of other family

members that are scattered through this country who are not related to me. I came upon some family quotes that I wanted to share with you as well. It also sums up how I feel about family, no matter who they are in my life.

  • “Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.” –Lisa Weed

  • “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” –Michael J. Fox

  • “The memories we make with our family is everything.” –Candace Cameron Bure

  • “Treat your family like friends and your friends like family.” -Unknown Author

  • “A happy family is but an earlier heaven.” –George Bernard Shaw

  • “Think of your family today and every day thereafter, don’t let the busy world of today keep you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family.” –Josiah

May ya’ll have a great week ahead and stay safe!
