31 Days of Life Lessons Day 1:: A Journey

31 life lessons I’ll teach my kids before I reach those pearly gates in heaven.  I know this sounds crazy.  I’m not morbid.  I’m not phobic.  Really!  I’m just a mom that wants to be the best teacher for our Girlies.  And yet I’ve been thinking… “What if something suddenly happened to me and I never taught our girls about….??”  Fill in the blank.  Who would teach them?  Only me, myself and I know my thoughts.

Our Girlies are little, 6 3/4 (yes that’s important to her) and 9 years old and growing fast.  How do I share the lessons I’ve learned so far with them, when they (understandably) care about the next play date or what’s for dessert?  Some life lessons make sense to little girls.  We are teaching those.  Some life lessons make sense to adults.  Who would teach them things only a mom, a sister, a woman, a girl should know?  That’s my job!  That’s the promise I made to Mr. Rosey and God when we decided to have children.  I want to share my life lessons I’ve learned so far with our girls even if they aren’t old enough to understand.  Someday they will.

The Nester’s blog has a 31 days series in October.  For 31 days each blogger writes about the same topic of their choosing.  Isn’t that great?  Eureka!  DING. DING. DING.  The light bulb went off.  I can write for 31 days about 31 different lessons I think are important to live a good life.  Ok.  Sounds great.  But… Whoa Nelly!  Hold on sista’.  Can I write for 31 days??  I don’t know.  Well…I’ve been wanting to get back to writing after the summer break… so this seems like the best incentive…so I think I can… so I’m in!  Ok, whew.  Now how do I make a blog button?  I’ve never done that.  But I figured it out.  I’m #610 or thereabouts on The Nester’s blog.  How cool is that?!!  Check out the other subjects on The Nester’s blog.  Back to the original subject.

The list is in no particular order of importance.  Some things will be simple.  Some things will be practical.  Some things you might say “Whaaaat the heck?”  And that’s ok.  I know the list would change over time, as I continue to grow and learn.  But right now, this is the 31 life lessons I want to share with our girls and with you.  Come back each day (hopefully) and read another one.  Let me know what you think.  Which lessons to live a good life are important to share with your children, your loved ones, your friends?
