Okay, we often think of a wonderful inspirational family quote.  But how often do we say it?  Mmmm, I thought so.

I suppose most of us are guilty of wrapping our warm fuzzy thoughts inside.  But every once in a while, we need to let our families know just how much they do mean to us -- every one of them.  Yes, even Aunt Bessie who keeps telling us to sit up straight, even when we're forty years old.

Perhaps you can jot a note for a lunch box with an inspirational family quote.  Perhaps the note will be on a pillow.  Perhaps it will become a bookmark, something to read before bedtime stories.

How we use our inspirational family quote selection isn't so important.  What is important is that we do use them. 

So here's an inspirational family quote for your family.  

Please send me some favorite inspirational family quotes of your own, too, and I'll add them in.  I would love to see how your family communicates its warm fuzzy feelings.
