The richest inheritance

1.happiness-photos

If your parents didn’t love and understand each other, how are we to know what love looks like?

There aren’t courses or classes in love.

If the grown-ups know how to take care of each other, then the children who grow up in this environment will naturally know how to love, understand, and bring happiness to others.

The most precious inheritance that parents can give their children is their own happiness.

Our parents may be able to leave us money, houses, and land, but they may not be happy people.

If we have happy parents, we have received the richest inheritance of all.

  1. Unfortunately, not something we can have any control over, we get whst we’re given, but we can control what we pass on 💕

      True… I guess we usually tend to want to shower our kids with what we didn’t get… yet sometimes it could instead be passed on a pattern…
