Advice to my Nieces and Nephews

I actually posted this elsewhere last summer, but I think it is worth sharing again.

Some of this is advice borrowed from others. Some of it is just from my experience. Either way, I have found it helpful.

*It is PRICELESS to have a friend who understands you even when you "just can't explain it". Treat them well.

*Kisses are not promises.

*Someday you will want to give your heart to a girl or boy. This is the same heart that you have already given to Christ. Make sure that girl or boy is worthy of being part of this heart relationship.

*Good manners before bad temper.

*The commandment to "Honor thy Father and Mother" DOES come with a promise, "that it may go well with you". And that promise does come true when you keep that commandment, even the times you wouldn't expect it to. So be good to Mom and Dad always.

*Do not keep secrets about illegal activity unless you are a Priest. This makes you an accessory. Use this advice for personal and professional situations.

*Keep all the other secrets given to you close to your heart. God will let you know what to do with them.

*Do what you say you are going to do. Be who you say you are going to be. This is sometimes harder than it sounds, but worth it.

*It's always an added bonus in life if you have an Auntie who adores you.
