Quote of the Week

“When someone really cares about you, they make an effort, not an excuse.”

Do you ever get sick of excuses? I do.

Of course, there are people in this world who are likely tired of my excuses:(

We are not perfect, we all mess up. But, I think effort is THE most important thing.

Although the quote is talking about relationship effort, I think it is applicable to all effort.

As the kids are heading into the final term of school – I keep reminding them of the effort they need to put in.

In the past few weeks I don’t know how many times we have talked about “how life is hard”. You have to put hard work into it. Hard work into school, jobs, cleaning your room:), and relationships. Very little in life that is worth it is easy. Another little tip I have told them is sometimes that the hard work that you put in NOW will save you from a lot of REALLY hard work later (the whole ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure idea).

I’m also a big believer in work hard, play hard too…

So lets push forward, more effort, less excuses – for us all – in all areas of our lives.

  1. I’m with you, Leah! My kids are starting to see the wisdom in what you say, which is what I say too. Do the work all along, and in the end it will be much less difficult than if you had done it all at the last minute.

    We have five more weeks of school to go…here’s hoping they can work hard for that much longer!
