Today is about what we are to our family. We know that Family is a group of people related by blood, marriage, adoption, friendship, law or custom, especially if they live or work together. Family is supposed to be the closest to us because it is described as almost everything around us. From wife to husband, children, parents, grandparents, friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Family is all about loving, giving, caring and sharing. It’s about being there for one another, meeting needs, and giving attention when needed.
… The love of a family is life’s greatest blessings.
As a husband or father, a wife or mother, a brother or sister, uncle or aunt, a male child or female child, friend or neighbor… Are you taking care of your loved ones? Are you being there for them? What are you to your family?
It is good to give attention to our career and profession, it’s a good thing to be focus on it but it is bad when it start affecting the quality time we give to our loved ones. You got to remember that when life turns bad or sour, what you need most is your loved ones and when life turn out better and great, you’d still need them to celebrate with you, you can’t celebrate alone of course.
Whatever a man sow he will surely reap. If you’re there for your family you will get the reward and if you’re not there, you will get a reward as well.
… As an individual you got to do right by your family now, spend time with them because there will be a time you will look around and you might not find them.
You might be thinking or saying…. common…. I had a rough start, no one loved me, no one was there for me, I struggled alone, I got my wealth alone with my sweat… and so on like that… Yeah, you are right, I feel your pain, I went through almost the same as you or more. But if you decide to not care and stay away, are you not doing exactly what they did to you? Are you not turning into what they are? Remember, two wrongs does not make a right.
You can change the thinking and lifestyle of your family by being good both by words and actions. You can change the errors of the past and set the future free by a true act of kindness.
… Family is where life begins and where love never ends. It is everything. Together we can make a family. It’s up to us to make it good or bad.
If everyone of us can start thinking about what we are to our families and start putting things right if they are not, then, happiness and fulfilment is certain.
THINK ABOUT IT.
… It’s a new week and I’m happy to start it with you. Have a great week.
