Spend time with your family

"The size of your heart is more important than the size of your home."

"Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world." - Mother Teresa

The dearest possession we have is our family. Togetherness is a very important ingredient to family life. The way to stay close is to do things together and share.

"Destroy the family, you destroy the country."

"Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing." - Jim Rohn

"Family is what grounds you." - Angelina Jolie

"The wisdom you leave your children is more important than any wealth you might leave them."

There's no place like home. Do cherish your relationships with your family by spending time with your family members. If you ever heard any of your family members says that their home is like a hotel then something needs to be rectified quickly.

Hi Sam!

Family serves as an important and fundamental unit in society. At times it is easy to take our family for granted for the simple fact that they are always there. Thanks for this good post to remind us to cherish this most basic relationship that we are either borned or married into.

I agree with "Family is what grounds you."

Have a Good Tuesday!

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your insight. You got it right! Family is an important fundamental unit in society. All parents must do their very best to bring up their children so that they will be able to contribute their best to the world to come. And this is only possible if we parent spend time with all our family members.

Blessings to you and yours.

Yes. Family is just like our base. If our base is in chaos, we will not be able to pursue our career or other things as we will be busy in putting back our base in order. If our base is in harmony, we will be able to concentrating in pursuing our career or our dreams.
