Strengthening Family Ties

   Make it a top priority to work together as a family and keep in touch with one another.  Grandchildren and great-grandchildren learn a lot from sharing with each other.  Plan picnics and family get-togethers, and keep family traditions alive:  prepare beloved, old family recipes – everybody likes to eat!  But above all, be there for family emergencies and help each other out as much as possible.  Parents and grandparents, muster the patience and understanding to keep the doors open to all who want and need your help – or simply need to be listened to.  (5)

Try to visit parents or grandparents at least once a month.  They won’t always be there.  (53)

Flowery accolades every five years at milestone birthdays are nice, but don’t neglect grandma and grandpa in between these major events.  (54)

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."

And what is the "something" we are aiming for here? Simply a life of robust good health in every important area - spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity. (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think. If you like what we are serving up, please tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by for a visit, too.
