"Peace begins with a smile." ~Mother Teresa

Peace for me must also begin at home.
He is happiest, be he king or peasant who finds peace in his home.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
  1. I will be a patient wife and mother. I will be wonderful.(Kate Pickle has made a wonderful poster)
  2. I will not get engaged in conflict needlessly ...though my teen pushes all my buttons & makes me blow my top. ...I will just start whistling
  3. I will ignore my husband's lack of reaction to #2. la la la
  4. I will keep the peace at all costs.
  5. I will be more thoughtful about the needs of those around me.

    You must be mindful of every interaction with another human being. Approach each person mindfully, with your full attention, smiling, seeking to understand them, trying to interact with gentleness, warmth, compassion.

    When someone comes to talk to you, when your kid tugs on your pant leg for attention, when your spouse or best friend starts speaking, turn to them without distraction, putting everything else away, and give your full attention. Listen... ~ZEN Habits
