Do You Spend Quality Time With Your Family?

"All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way", says the opening sentence of "Anna Karenina" the novel by Leo Tolstoi. The importance of the family as the smallest unit of society cannot be underestimated. Each one of us comes from a family and is part of a family. I always see to it that I always spend my quality time with my wife and daughter most especially during weekends. It is almost always the family that gives us our inspiration, rootedness, help and moral support rain or shine. How do you spend your quality time with your family? Do you still have time for your family? Does your family matters to you anymore? Picture credit: weclean4you.com

@mandala100 She wants to be a nurse, so she has 4 years ahead of her.

I always have time for my family and my family has time for me. I see Claudia more because she lives nearer. But Tania calls me often.

The main reason why I quitted my office job before and chose to work at home is I want to be able to spend more quality time with my family. That doesnt have to be extravagant. Sometimes, we just cook, clean, sing on the videoke, go to the market or grocery together.
