To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.- Confucius
Many of today’s most admired leaders, authors, speakers, pastors, priests and mentors remind us to PAUSE.
They say..."If you could just pause for a moment during your busy day to reflect upon that which is important to you"... "Pause for GOD and remember he is always with you"... "Hit the pause button and reflect upon the current moment in your life. Are you being who you want to be? Are you being “Authentic” in this moment?... "Could you have more patience in the present moment? ...... Are you living your best life right now?
We agree with the experts! We listen to their words, we try to take their direction and advice but for most of us we get caught up in the chaos of the day and forget to pause because we do not have the tools. No one has told us exactly how to make sure we pause. No one has given us something to prompt us to take that pause.

In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by the number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring and love you show to one another and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.- Marge Kennedy
