"Bringing up a family should be an adventure, not an anxious discipline in which everybody is constantly graded for performance." - (Milton R. Saperstein) ------------

Bringing up a family is an adventure yes but certainly it's not a joy ride. It's serious business. Imagine responsible for individuals brought to ...your care and nurturing until they are ripe to be on their own and tackle life at their own terms. Through that whole process you cry, sigh, laugh, fidget, sizzle with temper, tremble in fear, sulk in frustration, and everything else. And come the day that you see them off. But it does not stop there. Because all of their successes and failures are too brought back to your plate. To make you either smile or cry or despair and... do the same job all over again. That's more adventure than you could ever ask for!


  1. "A Happy Family Is But An Earlier Heaven" The role of parents in nurturing a family based on right values recognising the different talents,strengths and weaknesses of children is well nigh a difficult task."A good family is a haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace and most of all, a harbor of love."
    A nice post indeed.

  2. I know the feeling! Raising a family is a blessing but can sometimes feel like a curse! But in the end I would not have it any other way! I love my family and all the ups and downs that they come with and through it all I KNOW I am blessed!
