Thanks for Being a “Piece”-Maker

IMG_4600Being a peacemaker is something we talk a lot about in our home.  My husband and I are trying to teach our kids how to lower their voices, apologize to end a fight, not moan or make a fuss when asked to do something, and the list goes on and on.  You know, all of those things you work on daily to maintain or bring peace to your home.  I was thinking about Valentine’s Day coming up and trying to come up with a way to bring more love into our home, and this play on words popped into my mind.  I’ve tried it out a few days and the kids love it.  They really feel good when I have caught them being a peacemaker and ask them to please help themselves to a piece of candy.  I think I’ll pull this jar out at other holidays as well.  Heaven knows, peace is something worth striving for all year long.
