"Just Try It!"
I have said this phrase so many times over the years. When you have a big family, anytime you introduce something new, something other than the usual routine, you are always met with resistance from someone. I have told my kids "just try it" when there is a new food at the table. "Just try it" when the said they were sure the hand-me-down jeans would not fit. "Just try it" when we were attempting a new activity or project. "Just try it" when I recommended a good book instead of TV. The list is endless after 30+ years of raising 5 daughters and 1 son. Now that we have 2 grandsons and a granddaughter, I'm sure my own daughters are finding themselves saying "just try it" to their children as they coax them to try something new.
I hope this Blog serves to inspire you to try something new.
