Mission Statement

I told my husband that some couples have a mission statement for their marriage or their family.

I asked him why we didn’t, and he said we do.

Try not to fail.

So now, armed with a new sense of purpose, I can face my days in peace.

It’s even better in Latin.

tendo non deesse.

And now I shall take my mission statement to heart, and succeed most magnificently at eating popcorn and watching television.

Good, True & Beautiful

  1. eating popcorn and watching t.v. IS my mission statement! well you’d think so lately.
    really ours is “remain in Christ.”

    i tired to figure it out in a latin translator but there were too many definitions for “remain.” all could fit… and their definitions for “remain” weren’t easy – endure, stay, delay, stand, dwell, abide…i’m kind of in a delayed/enduring in Christ at this time…,but still here-with him.

  2. Erin,
    I just love that photo.

    and your mission statement.
    and may I add, that my husband and I , in those late night moments trying to make sense of things,
    often say together, at the same time,
    ” at least try”

    because you never know.
