My want for an Eternal Family

As I sit here, thinking about all the things I am grateful for, the list seems to get larger and larger as seconds go by. The thought of a loving Heavenly Father that loves us, the thought of an eternal plan for us, the thought of an Eternal Family makes me grateful to be here on Earth. The thing that I am most grateful for is: My Eternal Family. I am really grateful for them. I have two beautiful kids and an amazing wife and I am thankful for the love that I get from all of them.
Since watching conference I have thought a lot about what I want as a father and as a husband. There is so much evil in this world today, negative thoughts, hate, despair and suffering. You get on Youtube or even the news and there is nothing but filth and anger. My want is to protect my children from all these things and pray that I am able to.
Last week for family home evening Tamie, Evan, and I put together an "Aragon Proclamation to the world" It was there to establish what we want as a family and what we want others to know about us. It reads as follows:

We as the Aragon Family commit whether be life or death (haha) to do these things as a family to promote the spirit of the Lord in our home:
-Read the daily scriptures
-Family prayer
-Listen to appropriate-uplifting music
-Diligently attend our church meetings every week
-Do activities as a family that will bring us closer together
-Have Family home evening every week
-Treat each other nicely and show respect

We do so, Amen
with our signatures attached to it.

I am really happy to see that we did this as a family. We are striving to keep this list true. One day we will be perfect but its going to take a lot of work. We want to be happy and have the spirit in our home and to be an Eternal Family. We don't want the worldly things. I hope that when our kids grow up they can really follow this Proclamation!
