quotable monday - hansen family theme

{me and my dad on my wedding day}

One year ago today, my father passed away after a very courageous four year battle with cancer.
My dad is my hero. My dad is one of the greatest examples of Christ-like love that I have ever known. Its hard to know how to handle this day, but I know my dad would want me to smile and celebrate what a wonderful life he lived. 

A few years ago my mom came home from the store with a sign for our home that said "Because Nice Matters" This quote has become a family theme of ours since that day. Each of my siblings has a sign of their own that hangs on the wall, reminding us that nice does matter. 

I believe that kindness refines and progresses you. It builds up those around you, along with yourself.

You never know the situations and trials of others, because of that we should always treat others with love and kindness.

Because Nice Matters. It really does.
