We have come to know and we are convinced that nothing in this complicated world we live in can really and fully take the place of the precious and sacred relationship of family life. More so, when we have sampled much and have wandered far to see how fleeting and sometimes superficial a lot, if not all, of the world is, our gratitude always grows for the privilege of being part of something we can always depend and count on, and that is, the love and loyalty of our family.

Of course, we have already learned what it really means to be bound together by duty, by respect, and by belonging. Family life gives meaning and purpose to one’s existence in this world. In order to sustain it, one should relish it as he lives it, and the best way to do this is by finding joy in the journey by way of sharing his love with his family. It should be stressed that a family to be loved is more important than a problem to be solved. This should be the general rule, I should say.

A family taken for granted can lead to a broken home which is already a very serious problem to face, and one finds himself stressed out looking for solutions to it. One should always remember that prevention is better than cure. In looking at the inner picture in a family life, we find that communication is a vital key to a good and lasting relationship. Husbands should treat their wives with dignity and with respect. On the other hand, wives should honor their husbands. They both need to hear good and kind words and see friendly smiles and gestures from each other. They both need and expect warm expressions of true love. This is a two-way traffic kind of relationship, so to speak.

Meanwhile, parents should always show and express their love to their children. They sure know they love their children very much, but they should always make certain that their children know it as well. In the same manner, children should always let their parents know that they love them very much. They should also let their parents know how much they appreciate all the good things their parents have done and still continue to do for them. Expression of love to each other is definitely a very important communication tool that will make relationships lasting and relishing.

It is so very easy for anybody to take his family for granted until that day when they are already gone from his life and he is left with feelings of guilt and regrets. This is really the hardest part, and the saddest of all, one would not want to experience in life. Inevitably, one day each one of us will run out of tomorrows. Let us not put off what is most important of all and that is, to spend precious and quality time with our respective families.
