BC Bloggers Meme: Family Bonding

"The best inheritance a parent can give to his children is a few minutes of their time each day."
- M. Grundler


I belong to a 'very-family-oriented' clan.
Why 'very-family-oriented'?
I belong to a clan where parents (already my grandparents), tend to hold on to their kids even after marriage, and have kids of their own.
YES, We live with our grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Our widow Grand Matriarch can't seem to let her children go, even now that they're no longer children, and now have their family, kids, and even grandkids of their own.
And the same applies to the widow Grand Matriarch's widow sisters. 
And although we don't live with our grandmother's sisters, they're just around the corner. =)
This is why we're close not only to our first-cousins, but also to our second-cousins.


It is, however, undeniable that time can make people grow apart.
Time flies so fast that we sometimes fail to notice our routines change.


It's a good thing that no matter how busy everyone has become, we manage to spend time together whenever possible.


YES, WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
WE MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT.




For us, the rain isn't an excuse, it could, in fact, be the reason.


Together we try to reach the sky.

We bite each other.


We jump on the mattress regardless of our age. ;D 


We make ONE enough.


We make life a feast.


We cam-whore while we drive ;)




We celebrate accomplishments with the ones who appreciate them most, FAMILY.                  













Life is Family; and Family is Life


How about you?
I'm sure you have your own ways of strengthening your family bonds.
Tell us how you do it.

      Envious? Don't be. It's never too late. Our family isn't limited to the family that was given to us. We can always extend our family.

      It's not always fun times. Arguments, dis-approvals, and misunderstandings happen, but nonetheless, we manage to rise up against the odds. :)

  12. Although at times it can feel like a curse, to have a family this close really is a blessing. Remember, not everyone has such a solid foundation.

    1. Right. It's not always rainbows and butterflies. But I think it's what makes our foundation even stronger.

    1. I agree! Civic organizations should take notice on this and award the family elders who have kept the family's strong bonding. :)
