Nothing feels great for the feeling of being home. Being with your family and have all the time to bond together. I really missed those times when anytime we can talk everything under the sun. But things changed when I already got a job in the city. We seldom spend time. Texting and calling is the means now of our communications. But as long as I have my day off and available time, I really see to it that I spend it with them. I really never wasted a time being with them. How about you? How do you spend quality time with them?

Now that my boys are grown and their dad and I are divorce, they are only able to visit about once or twice a year as airfare is very expensive. At Christmas, their dad splits the cost with me, which is nice. We spend every moment doing something that we enjoy, even if that's just sitting down and watching a movie together. Mostly, though, we're talking and driving around seeing the sights, playing in the snow or exploring new places together. We don't waste a moment!

I always find time to spend and share with my family. Whether we go out or just stay at home, I always make it a point to be with my family particularly my 2 children. Any activity will do, even a simple walk around the subdivision as long as we enjoy each others company and have good and valuable moment together, something that they can remember when they grew older.

Yeah that's true spending quality time with your love ones is very important in a relationship. Just keep the communication open, it feels like your not far away with them.. Us? Every Weekends is our bonding time because we don't have work. On Saturday, we usually rented lot of dvd tapes and have a movie marathon, we also cooked something special for lunch to eat together and bake great snacks! and back watching.. On Sunday, we went to church and after we go to mall and amusement center and have fun in there!.. and at night, this is very precious to me- we do talking and sharing something reading and play with our baby :) Thanks and have blessed day ahead...

We have a big united family. We are all busy with our profession but still we spend some time with each other on daily basis, chatting each other, watching TV, reading books, discussing each other's progress in their life etc. Some times we dont get time for this daily but atleast we manage it on sunday. It keeps us refreshing and bonded with each other.
