Treasure your family

 

Whether we are talking about the nuclear or the extended family, we can expect to find a delicate, explosive network that is second to none.

 

Families bitch and moan. They can suck up your bone marrow better than a giant octopus. Competition is their middle name. The house, children, jobs and pets are fair game during any family gathering. How many times don't we just want to throw in the towel and swear we don't need this madness in our lives?

 

Then there's the creme de la creme personality of families. The Pacific Ocean is too small to hold all the love and concern they have for us. When we succeed, they rally the shooting stars to broadcast our achievements to the world. Their drooling makes our spines curl and the water rise in our knees. Don't we just want to hug them eternally on these occasions?

 

Such is the life of families. Embrace this ambivalence that provides the fuel for REAL families. Families are alive, high energy organisms that need constant interaction to keep their balance.

 

Be the thermostats to ensure a healthy environment for family to thrive.

 

Treasure your family.
