Family is the Greatest Treasure

· December 18, 2015

Family is the greatest treasure, and family gives us our place in the world. We are real, and we all make mistakes; we ask for forgiveness, we fight, we help others, and we make a lot of noise. But we have patience, and we love each other. Family means home, and the comforting corner in which we take refuge.

It is the hand the wipes away our tears and caresses our soul. It the intangible place that takes us in, the place that smells of childhood, of growing up, of lessons learned.

It is the place where hugs and kisses are found, as well as the answers to all our questions. Family is the fire in which our values are forged, and our sense of the world molded.

Family smells of indescribable things, and all that belongs to us that can’t be touched or put into words. To our family we owe our most precious secrets, our deepest worries, and our biggest smiles. 

There may be moments in which things fall, and break, but family will always be our beginning and our end. We are a group bonded together, made up of imperfect people, but people who can fight together against anything life throws at us.

One of the greatest values of family is unconditional love and affection. It is the gentle world of welcomed hugs and hearts we try to protect.

The love of family 

The love of family is unconditional and infinite. It doesn’t matter where you find it, you know you can always get a warm hug, no matter how far away you are.

It is an affection that holds the best reflection of who we are. The best, most genuine and most beautiful version of ourselves, and that which we deserve to see and be reminded of every day. For this reason, our family is the most worthy in the whole world to receive the gold medal for the best support given, the best shoulder to cry on, and the best therapy available.

Family is our light, and the bond between family members is the strongest there is; it is unique and irreplaceable. Thanks to family, we are the masters of our emotions. Thanks to family, we intuitively understand each other and are able to take pleasure in sharing inside jokes and inside glances. Thanks to family, we experience admiration and pride that builds within us the most pure and unique love that exists.

Maybe our family isn’t perfect, and sometimes it causes us to think about our fortune, good or bad, or to become infuriated in certain conversations. However, being able to share our existence in this intimate way is the greatest blessing life gives us.

Nevertheless, we must be careful to not feed into rivalries and conflict within our family, for it can create a very real stress on the emotional health of the home. We have to be especially careful to preserve this bond of family. This can be done by always sharing a common, and simple, goal: the happiness and stability of each member of the family.

Take care of family, it is our most precious belonging

Family is like music: there are high notes, and there are low notes, but it is always a beautiful song. 

Family, whether by blood or not, is made up of the people who love us and who accept us for who we are. It is those who would do anything just to see us smile, and who love us unconditionally.

Our home is the most important structure of our life. Our relationship with our family and our home is what we base off and build on our idea of the world that surrounds us.

The best gift that we can give our family is spending time with them. For that reason we must take care of the emotional climate within the family and the home. Naturally, this is centered on the emotional wellbeing and growth of each family member.

Despite the fact that home is the place where we can be ourselves, it is important to be aware of the idea of what is “fair” and what is not. This little idea can divide and deteriorate us. Confidence, respect, and solidarity should always be the framework of family relationships.

Dedicate time everyday to your family. Think of them, put yourself in their place, and always, as much as you can, hug them and show them how much you love them.

Remember that to have family is to have the greatest of all fortunes; family is the greatest treasure.
