Putting Adversity in Your Gratitude Journal
It sounds counter-intuitive--being grateful for opposition and problems and adversity, but actually these things are an important and essential part of thankfulness and gratitude. As on every first week of the month, Richard and Linda issue a challenge on a new approach to gratitude journals for the month ahead, and for August their challenge is to write down an obstacle each day and how we either resolved it or embraced it.

Three-Letter Lesson #14: END
This episode is devoted to vision, dreams, and the ENDS that we want to work toward in our lives. The Eyre's begin with some final end-notes on their Family Reunion that has just concluded and then move to their three-letter lesson series where END becomes the focus, along with the MEANS or plans that get us to our desired family and relationship goals or ends. It is our envisioned ends that can guide and direct our whole lives!

The Importance of Extended Family
Linda and Richard have just concluded their annual Family Reunion, so relationships and extended family are on their minds. They pose the question of which is most important, our achievements or our relationships, and ask "which can we take with us" and suggest that the time we spend in contact with all three generations of our families--including cousins and in-laws, is the most important time of all.

Grandkids in Small Groups
The Eyre's just returned from a Motorhome road trip with four teenage granddaughters, and today they talk about their tradition of taking small groups of similar age grandkids on little trips away from distractions, parents, school, friends and "normal life" where real cousin-bonding can occur and where meaningful conversation and relationships can form between generations 1 and 3.

Parenting: One Goal, Many Methods
The Eyre's are casting today from Blakley Island in the San Juan Islands where they are visiting their son Jonah and his family who are spending the summer running the marina and store on the Island. Richard and Linda point out how all parents throughout the world share the goal of raising Joyful, Responsible, Sensitive Children, we all find our own methods for doing so. Jonah and Aja's example is extreme in some ways, but it will prompt our own ideas.

3-Letter Lesson #13: REL
Today the Eyre's continue their 3-letter lesson series. REL abbreviates Relationships, which they contrast with Achievements as the two things we desire and that we spend our time and energy on. Achievements are about what we DO and they make up our "Resume virtues" while Relationships are about who we ARE and who we LOVE, and they make up our "Eulogy Virtues." The Eyre's conclude with the revolutionary concept of setting "Relationship Goals."

Throwback- Three-Letter Lesson #9: LOW
On today's show, the Eyre's continue their series on "three-letter lessons"--little word-pegs that represent touchstones or concepts to live by. The word LOW may initially have a negative connotation, but think of it as a representation of humility, of the joyful acknowledgement of our own vulnerability and "nothingness" contrasted with the glory and "everythingness" of God. This replaces self-confidence with faith and leads to calmness and peace (and even to lower blood pressure!)

The Summer Of Grandparenting

Gratitude and Vitality
On the first week of every month, Richard and Linda talk about another unique aspect of Gratitude, and today they challenge us to focus on one physical, bodily blessing each day while meditating for three minutes, and then to write, in our gratitude journals, a sentence about that aspect of our health. Gratitude, the Eyre's believe, is a key to vitality, and shifting our focus from something that is not going well in our bodies to something that is--can bring a welcome bit of joy.

Three-Letter-Lesson #12: NOW
There is no shortage of talk about centering yourself, living in the present, embracing the now, but the Eyre's give it a few new dimensions as they discuss ways to be more aware and in tune even in the midst of the really HARD points and phases of life.

Three-Letter Lesson #11 "ONE"
On today's episode the Richard and Linda reveal more about the book they are writing called "Three Letter Lessons" and how simple little "word-pegs" can influence how we live and how we see the world. The eleventh lesson is "ONE" which is about how we can be united with and tolerant of those we disagree with or are different from. And, the Eyre's contend, "oneness" is a better and more complete goal for marriage than "equality."

The May Challenge for Gratitude Journals
On today's episode, Richard and Linda unveil the new "take" on gratitude and challenge us to write one handwritten thank-you note each week and to write one "happy" and one "sad" each day in our gratitude journals. They discuss how the art of graceful and grateful receiving can transform our lives and the lives of others. One metaphor is that no matter how perfect a pass the quarterback throws, it is not complete until the receiver gathers it in.

Three-Letter Lessons (A review and a special guest)
The Eyre's are casting today from the Island of Mallorca off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean. They are there with their son Talmadge, working on their forthcoming book THREE-LETTER LESSONS, which presents 20 "word pegs" to help refine and improve our attitudes and our characters. Most people today work and plan harder on what they are DOING than on who they are BECOMING. The word pegs of the three-letter lessons can change that balance.

Three-Letter Lesson #10: FAM
On today's episode, the Eyre's continue with their mini-series on short, three letter words or abbreviations that can set our priorities and attitudes for life. The tenth three letter lesson is FAM, or the ultimate priority of our families in the broadest extended sense that includes cousins, uncles, aunts, parents--everyone to whom we are blood related. Learning to love and serve and forgive and mend fences within this "inner" of life is the key to everything.
