- The Family Blackboard -
We have had this blackboard in our kitchen for many years. And even though it is small in size, I believe the messages jotted down have had a big impact on our lives.
It started out with "Word of the Week" where each family member would take their turn to write a new word and its meaning. As the kids grew older, however, they experienced life's ups and downs and so the focus changed and I would write down words of encouragement from the Bible or other popular quotes.
Isn't it amazing what a few inspiring words can do to improve your day? I hope that my children will pass this family tradition on to their own families someday.
It's never too late to get your own blackboard...
