The title of today’s blog is our family motto. It is important. It is our guiding principle. It applies to our nuclear family – my husband, our boys and me. It also extends to our immediate family – which adds an element of challenge.
Not long ago we had to make a decision that protected our niece and offended a family friend. It wasn’t meant to be upsetting, it is just we needed to make a choice….and the tough choice was made – family comes first.
It is not always easy – and sometimes it doesn’t work out well; especially when others may cause hurt or perhaps do not attach the same importance to famiglia. Never mind though – because for as much as it is up to you [us] – per God’s instruction – we must be at peace with our brother (Romans 12:8).
That is why I included this bit below from the Daily Signal. This young woman, Sadie Robertson knows the meaning of family first. She publicly honours her family and her faith – because to do anything different would be breaking that faith and disowning family. She teaches a good lesson. You go girl. 🙂
I don’t watch a lot of TV and have never watched DWTS. This interview IS worth watching.
