The Fabric of Our Lives

In his keynote address for the New Mexico Family Educators Conference in 1997 Mark noted, “Through the lessons we teach and the lessons we learn, we and our children weave the fabric of our lives. Sharing books, making meals together, through days of being sick, or traveling to visit friends and relatives. Picnics in the summer, building snowmen in the winter, day in and day out our lives wind together, over and under and around each other, creating a beautiful tapestry. Lessons like this can’t be replicated in a school setting. These are the lessons our kids can carry with them through their lives, the lessons they can depend on for guidance and pass on to the next generation.”
