Have you talked to AND TAUGHT your kids what this day is REALLY about? Take the time to honor those who have fallen, remember those who have served, and pray for those serving… and teach your children to do the same. That’s what Memorial Day is about.
I was flipping through channels the other day and came across the show “Wife Swap”. My girls and I watched it for a bit, after which they asked me to not EVER go on a show like that because they wouldn’t want a different mommy… :)
That got me thinking: IF I were to ever go on a show like that…considering that they usually try to swap you out for someone who lives very differently than you do, how would the “new mom” they swap me out for be? Based on how I am, how I live, etc., what would HER main characteristics be? The interesting thing about this is that I first have to think of MY characteristics and be able to list them to see what my “opposite” would be.
It’s an interesting little thing to think about, I think…. What about you? How might the person they swap YOU out with be like? ;-)
