You can make more money, but you can not make more time. That has been my philosophy when it comes to my family and closest friends. My time has always been spent with them. Or i make sure i have the time for them. When i know that they will be coming over or take their vacation, i do all my paperworks ahead or in advance. Anything that will be due on the days that they will be here. Even my siblings who are in uniform file their leave just to make sure we will be complete on those days. And that is one of the things i am proud of, the tight bond we have. Do you also take some work in advance to be able to spend time with your family?

You are doing a great job.Seriously very good.Yeah I also take out time for my family and try to give them as much as I can.And I 'm currently studying so whenever I get time I take out for my closest buddies and meet them and spend quality time with them.It's very important to understand the value of time and the people you love in your life.

I have realized as I have gotten older that now is the time to make memories and spend time with loved ones. Tomorrow is never guaranteed to us.

when we grow older, we tend to miss valuable times, but as long as you have those moments, you know you have something to treasure :)

When my family visits or I visit them we spend all our time together because it's so precious. I also try to make time for my friends as well. It's important to keep all relationships as strong as possible since life always gets in the way and we get busy at times.

My father is the sole working member in my family as i am currently in my final year of engineering. He works hard at day but I have never seen him go on trips or just roam around with his buddies, as soon as the office gets over he is back home to spend time with us. me , my mom and my little sister. I believe he values every second he spends with us.

" time is gold" for me is only true sometimes because there are instances that it's priceless or worth more than gold like the situations you mentioned.

I'm always here. I don't always have a vehicle as my kids take them over. So I am here, it's more up to them to make time for me. Unfortunately because of my lack of vehicle access I can't get out and make the time to see my mother as I would like. She is an hour away and I need a vehicle for awhile and preferably a second driver. When the kids were younger we always had family game nights. I wish those didn't stop but their schedules are busier and they are always coming and going with no time to spend together as a family.

If you are rich enough, you can buy a lot of time. Rich people do not have to do housework, and that saves a lot of time. They travel by air more frequently, so that is a time saver as well. If they are rich enough, they will have their own private plane, and yacht.

I have learned that we make time for what is important to us. There is always something more important that must be done. Somehow I always manage to accomplish what needs to be done when I put family first.

although the money is the basic need of everyone ,it has its limit ,the family and relations are the first priority in life ,when we need the help the friends are always with us ,sometime relations perform best and value of money is less at that time,it is truth.

Family is the most important part in one life without family you feel incomplete i agree with you you have to create a bond to be close that effort is very important . I know of families where brothers and sisters cannot be in same room together so I salute you for making the effort and time for your loved ones
