Family Rocks! 20 Family Rules for Building Stronger Family

Posted on | November 27, 2012 | 4 Comments

I was thinking of something to write last night and I couldn’t quite get my finger into the thought that I was running in my mind, that is, until I joined my daughter who was sitting on the floor and watching Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.

One very profound line that swept me was this, “We are One!” That was when Kiara said, “what if I don’t wanna be queen?” and Simba answered, “It’s like saying you don’t wanna be a lion, it’s in your blood.”

So true, indeed! Sometimes we forget who we are and the family that we have.

Our family will always be here for us. No matter where we go, and what we do, our family will be the same. We are part of it. We are one with it. And the least that we can do about our family is to contribute to its strength.

Many thanks to the people who shared their thoughts. Chariss, Jocelyn, Terrie, Sara, Jessica, Hakeem, and Romer. The rules below were shared by these wonderful people over at CITS.
