Thoughts on Family

Sometimes things change but we begin and end with the family.

Family is everything. It’s the final bus stop for everyone. Think of the Prodigal son who returned to his Father when he lost everything.

Here are some notes on what to do to keep positive relationships with your family members.

Don’t let arguments or fights take away your happy moments. Sometimes I may be right and if others won’t see things the way I do. I let things be. Respect each other’s opinion.

It’s good to let go, to forgive. Humans err. No one is perfect. Apologizing and forgiving quickly when you offend someone will nip a growing grudge in the bud.

Be the humble one in the house. If you serve others you will see things from a milder perspective. Obey your elders. Rebellion pays no good tidings. Celebrate each other’s success. Be happy for any progress made in the family. Show your loyalty and concern. Support the family in any way you can.

Family time is precious. Evening family time is a great time to let steam off and share the days experience. A family that plays together, stays together. I learned more about life in my home than in school.

The relieve that comes with having a family time is unexplainable. Features of a happy family differs from one family to another. Permit me to include warm smiles, warm hugs and advices and warm soups in the basic feature!
