I just felt like I needed to write to families out there to have them remember what a family is. 

(to mom, dad, Matt, Whitney, Tyler, Alex, Sophi, Nick Toni, Jace and Russell, none of this applies to you. You guys are the best family!)

F: Forever- Whether you like or not you guys are together forever. So start acting like it. Families are suppose to stick together. Not ignore each other and treat each other like some homeless person. It's really sad to watch and I'm deeply sadden that I watch some people treat there friends better than there family.

A: Attitude- Your attitude towards your family is key to the whole thing. If you have a negative attitude toward anyone in your family your seriously causing MAJOR PROBLEMS in the ENTIRE family. And it makes everyone else feel extremely uncomfortable. Say what you need to say and get over it. It's honestly selfish of you to ruin everyone else's happiness. 

M: Marriage- You need to make sure you have a strong HEALTHY relationship. You need to treat each other as equals. Working together to make sure that your family needs are being met and each others. And if your in an unhealthy relationship. (and yes I am pointing this one at a certain someone and I really hope you read this) You need to get out of that unhealthy relationship. Don't tear yourself away from your family. They are here for you. Put your marriage first always but if it is time to get out then get out!

I: Ideal- Just so you know there is no "ideal" family. It doesn't exist. So if you think there is a certain person in your family that just ruins that for you then your seriously hindering the family. No 2 people are alike that means no family can be the same. Some families get along great together, some families it's total chaos when they get together (kinda like mine) but we know we still love each other and I know they are ALWAYS there for me.

L: Laughter- If you can't laugh or be yourself around your family then you need seriously take a look around and find out why. If you need to address a problem or something like that then address it and get over it. A family that can laugh together is a family that stays together. Find something you can all do and enjoy and do it! Be comfortable with each other and just enjoy each other.

Y: Yourself- Now this one isn't for selfish reasons. I am stating yourself because you need to have a positive attitude about yourself. If you don't have a negative attitude about yourself how is your family suppose to have a positive attitude about you? And if you don't have a good opinion of yourself you will do anything to make everyone around you feel the same about you. Or you'll start gossiping about other family members to other family members and certain people will hear it whether you think they can hear or not and you can really mess up the family. (yeah just so you know I hear everything and if you think no one heard you... Try again. I've got good dirt on people who don't even know I do but I'll most likely never use it.)

"Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.

Family is the greatest blessing!! I'm so grateful for my family and how wonderful they are. I can't imagine life without them!!
