“A Happy Family is but an earlier heaven” — Irish Playwright–George Bernard Shaw

The featured image I choose for this post is of our family pet our family dog…My son took this photo this morning and sent it to me…Our dog looks so peaceful and happy on the couch in her comforters that we provide for her…Our dog is considered a part of our small family which consists of me mum my son who is a teenager now and our dog…Family is a unique experience and what is family or what constitutes family differs these days…We have various families these days that do not always fit the so called “status quo”…What is status quo? — A fair question that I leave to my individual unique readers to answer for themselves as only they can…After all we are all unique…I am reading an interesting book titled Never Argue with a Dead Person by Thomas John a Manhattan Medium…His book consists of various interesting short stories…I love the way this book is written it is easy to pick up and put down as I read during my busy days…I realize my library books which this is one of are overdue so I may have to pay some fines to the local library…I am happy to do it though because I love the local library…I will return my over due library books next week…The public library is a great place to just be and to read…I love to read I enjoy the quiet time sitting and not thinking much except to read…This morning when I got up I was not in the best mood I have chronic pain that I deal with so this morning I was moody…My son was also up this morning and by helping me his mum with small things my son was able to also adjust his bad mood…My son can be moody in the mornings too…I decided to order breakfast for the two of us from our favorite local restaurant that is open 24/7…We decided to have country fried steak and eggs and pancakes and I had a cup of coffee delivered and my son had orange juice…The food was delicious as always and we had a lovely Sunday morning breakfast…My son enjoys eating by himself he loves to just be in his room and eat…Now for some families that may be considered not regular or normal but this is our normal…My son helped me this morning with household tid bits and I told my son that until he is old enough to find a job to consider himself hired be my his mum to help out around the house…By telling my son he is hired my son has a renewed sense of purpose plus I pay him for his trouble…What is so cute is I said you now have a small sum to spend how do you want to spend your pay your wages for working for mum??? — My son thought about it had no big ideas then we both agreed on ordering a delicious breakfast and that is what we did…By doing this for my son it helped to distract my son from his bad mood and in the process distract myself enough to get out of my own bad morning mood…We are now enjoying a nice relaxing Sunday morning…I took the dog out and she had a great run this morning so she is tired out and content…So with my son a much happier young teenager who is now well fed and my dog happy from her run and also well fed…I mum can relax and blog or do other relaxing things today…I do not know what heaven is like but I do agree with George Bernard Shaw that “A happy family is but an earlier heaven”. Very true I concur one hundred percent for when we are happy in our own homes that happiness can spread to others as we go about our busy days…Have a blessed and happy and restful and peaceful Sunday from our modest home to yours…My son teaches me a lot and my son is also learning from me his moody mum…We worked today very well as a team and we are now both in the habit of always checking the laundry when going in or out to ensure the wash is in the dryer that a new load is started so as to stay current with laundry…We have also developed the habit of turning off the lights when resting or going somewhere…I have taught my son how to do his own laundry so he does his own laundry now my son can cook some and he helps with the dishes and other household chores such as trash etc…By teaching my son how to run a house I prepare my son for the world…As a thank you for your follows likes and shares enjoy my most popular YouTube video which features our lovely neighbor black and white kitty cat that visits on occasion and usually gets tuna and water and lots of hospitality and love from yours truly your seriously silly blogger and YouTuber…In our home we are animal lovers and my son does great with animals…My son has empathy a trait I do my best to ensure that my son always has – empathy and care and concern for the other be that the dog or cat or mum or someone else…So that as my son matures and grows up he will one day become a father and will hopefully make a great father and husband…When we fail to teach our children empathy and how to be responsible at home we fail whole societies and family life continues to be destroyed by many an entitled adult…
