Live each day as if this is your last and what you say and do is the way you will be remembered............many times we interact with others, forgetting that what we say, what we do, the way we treat them is the only thing they will ever know about us!

Take the chances life sends your way. Don't be so conservative. But whatever you do, be friendly and make other people's lives that much better, while you're at it!

I would like to pass down the fact that you can survive anything you are handed. That god doesn't hand you anything you can't survive through. You also need to belive in your self that you can do anything you put your mind to. That life is fun and to enjoy the life you have cause it goes by so fast. And last but no means least Notice the small things in life because you don't want to miss something that could be a big thing.

Thank God every day for his blessings and remember to appreciate your friends and family. I know it's often difficult to appreciate family, but I just spent the weekend taking care of issues relating to my elderly mother, and, I can say with all honesty that I have a new-found appreciation for my sister-in-law. While she can tend to be a little loud, and laughs hilariously at her own jokes, I have discovered that she is a very loving, kind-hearted person. And, although her "always on" personality can grate on my nerves, I am ashamed that it has taken me 20+ years to get to know her. So, always learn to appreciate what is right in front of you, even if it does try your patience.

I would want my family to know to look to God first - - he will never steer you wrong. I would want them to always look for a positive for every negative thought they have. To find people who love you for you - - not necessarily blood relative either. A family of love can be a group of people who will listen and understand when you down and out, feeling sad, etc etc. It's those people who are your true friends. ALWAYS take care of yourself. The older you get the harder it is to learn that and how to do it.

I agree Wanda. I have found that my closest family are my best friends. Most of them are in my church. Also most of them are a lot older than me. They are the ones who teach me, encourage me and just let me be myself. That is what I would like to pass down to my daughters is to find those who can be a mentor and a friend.

Unfortunately my life has been a series of tragedies and I've learned that the worst thing in life is to grow up knowing you aren't loved or wanted by the people you're born to - that neither of your parents or your extended families wanted you...cared for you.
With that said, the most important lesson I've learned is to surround yourself with people who support and encourage you, people who will pray for you and people who listen when you have a need.
Family isn't always those who share the same blood line; sometimes family is a series of friends who are there for you in ways your birth family refuse to be. Allow yourself to be loved by people who are able and willing to love you and don't let blood be the only determining factor as you decide who your family really is.

Something good happens everyday. On your darkest day, look for that good thing...a stranger's smile, the breathtaking sunrise, a blanket of stars, a deep breath of fresh air. Looking for the good will get you through the bad.

I try to pass on that materialistic things are less important than love, loyalty, compassion, postive attitudes and other emotional values. I want them to know that the only major thing they learn from being hooked on the materialistic stuff is debt ( not the only thing). I know that having things is important, but my life has shown me that keeping up with the Jones' has not made me happy but keeping up with my family has set me for life. I teach the value of a dollar so much that when we say we ar not going out to eat because we dont have money this week, the kids will pull out their banks. They always use their money for church offering.
This is the most important thing that we teach everyday and learn everyday. Learning from God, Jesus, the Holy spirit ad each other!

What would I like to pass?... After being thru a completely life altering automobile accident and the after-effects it has had on me, I have learned a few things: First off is to be patient with yourself! I didn't learn how to walk again in 1 day. It took months of rehab and 2 years of suffering a left hemi-paresis. (sp?) After not listening to people who love me, I ended up married and pregnant: I made a conscious decision that I could "not keep this baby". I chose the couple who adopted my Benjamin and am comforted, constantly, by the fact that I know he is happy and loved. Again: patience is a virtue! So..to all of my friends with teenagers: I was 19yrs old-don't tell me what to do age-I thought that I was invincible. Wrong again! With strength and patience I learned how to walk, talk, eat and be potty trained all over again at 19 years. I have now had further education(graduated 4.0) and am now just being a semi-happy adult. Complete happiness will come in due time..be patient! It's coming......

If there was one thing that you've learned in life so far which lesson would you like to be sure your children or people you care about to know?
“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” ~ Forest E. Witcraft
This may be a hard one for some. It is true that we never stop learning and sometimes what we think we know isn't always true. But if you were gone tommorow the things people have learned from you carry on and it's important to awknowledge how important you are!! You make a difference in peoples lives. What is it you will rest easy knowing you can/or have taught someone?
For me I want my children to learn what I learned from my Daddy: You earn respect by being a person of your word and hard work always pays off. And although I haven't applied those lessons in all areas of my life I did learn something and my kids know how much love and respect I have for my Dad-he is my hero;)
From me especially- To think of others and have compassion for all living things. Giving to others can make your life purposeful and rich without money. Love never fails. I collect things that say that "Love never fails" and my oldest daughter wants to have those words tatooed on her back! (when she's old enough) That means alot to me that they can learn from me how important and how much faith you can put in love!
