I had a gret time with my siblings this past week...It was just great seeing my 3 brothers and 2 sisters...I am the oldest in the groups including nieces, nephews, cousins so I feel special. and they are always very tentative to me...and when we get together its just fun fun and more fun. I Love my family and we are so very very close and caring for each other..I think its sad when some people can't seem to get along with their family...I have never been in that situtation so maybe thats why its so hard to understand... what about you...are you very family orientated???

I am not very close with my family, not my blood relatives anyway. I am close with my best friends, the ones I consider my sisters. I am glad you had a great time with your family and hope your able to visit with them again real soon.

Yes I am, Before every Sunday, we had this tradition that we would go to our grandmother's house and hang out. Together with the whole family, we play games, watch movies, eat together. I was fun, but since I am living far from them now, because I am studying far from my hometown, I miss all the fun for now. :(

I like visiting my family and when we lived nearby, my mom would have weekly dinners. It was not uncommon for me to see them a few times a week.

That was when we lived in the same area. Other than 1 uncle all of my family lives within a 10 minutes drive from each other. We used to live in the same area until my husband joined the military a few years ago. I'd like to buy a house and move back there, but Louisiana isn't the best place to raise kids, the economy isn't very strong and my husband wants to go to to school in Orlando. So, in a few months we will be in Florida. At least Orlando is a lot closer to New Orleans than San Diego (and they have cheap directly flights).

Hello bjc66bjc Glad to hear that you returned home safely and that you had such a great visit with your family! I am close to my family as well, and I miss them now that I live so far away. Mrs. Turner and I are planning a trip to visit our families next week and we are very excited about it. However, we are not so excited about the horrid heat that we know we will encounter back home. Peace

I have one of the best families in the world. They do not just talk about caring for each other, they really do care for one another and that is tops.

Anyway, I'm more closes to my best friend I just consider them as sisters. But yesterday one of my male bestfriend came here and my eldest daughter Ann together with my grandson visited me and were having time together.

Hey good to know u had such a wonderful time. Even i came a week back from my parents home. It is always so good to be around people who care for you and love you. I am also very family oriented, in fact i start feeling home sick when i am out alone for long.

Spending times with family is always bring happiness to mind and body beacuase we are talking with the peoples who loves us very much.Family not only coming by tradition it is the responsibility of the generation which adopts the good things from the culture.They man who adopts to the traditional values gives much importance to the family.So,the children will follow atlesast 50% in their tradition of life.But,nowdays very few families are united.We can't able to get the grandfather,grandmother blessings and their valuable suggestions towards the leading of life.Today,nobody is ready to listen for advice,so everybody makes their family separte and will meet when any occasion.A person who is coming from another country learn about our culture and try to adopt it in his home.But,we did not realise our culture values and never ready to share anything except with collegues who work in office.We are giving much importance to prestige issues and giving less value to unity.
