“Being a family means you are a part of something wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life no matter what.”
My family and I on a lunch date.
Occasion? There’s none!
Sometimes we get too busy with work and priorities in life that we unconsciously lose track with the most important people in our lives – our family. Even weekends are spent with something else at times. We do work overtime, we go out with friends, we go shopping, we eat out, we watch movies and the rest of the day is spent with ourselves – alone – in our room…socializing with friends online, checking out epiphone vs gibson, reading books, if not, snoozing . Yes we may have shared the same roof, see each other everyday, casually talk with one another — but are these what we consider quality time?
Each of us define “quality time” differently. To many it could mean a weekend; to some a day or two; and to few others maybe a getaway. To me a quality time spent with a family doesn’t have to be measured by time or distance. I spend time with my family at anytime and any day, with or without a reason simply because they are important part of me and they deserve my time. It doesn’t have to be planned. It doesn’t even require an occasion to spend time with each other.
The nature of my job can be very demanding and may require most of my time so I can only stay home just as much and when I do, I always find time sitting down with them over lunch or dinner. In addition my new weekend passion which is baking has became my way of getting close to them. Each time I try something new, I always have them as my critics. 😀
What about you? What does a quality family time mean to you?
