Three Actions For A Good Life

I once heard a speaker talk about three actions for a good life.

  1. Create beauty
  2. Build Relationships
  3. Show Compassion

I think my parents and my husband’s parents were good examples of those actions.

Create Beauty

Build Relationships

My parents-in-law with their family. 

My Mom with her life long friend Millie. 

3. Show compassion

Create beauty. Build relationships. Show compassion.   Three good guidelines to chart our course in life. Thanks to our parents for showing us the way.
