A happy family is one that shows respect to each family member.
It is one that values the various strengths and talents that form the unit or community. These strengths when pulled together form big goals, not only for the family but for a bigger group or community. This community will be ready to go out and serve for progress.
A fruitful and happy community is one that supports the basic needs of the members. It teaches them how to live with dignity through hard work, education and sharing.
A strong unit or core group produces a good harvest, working on positive project results, and sharing the fruits of honest labor.
A strong core unit can stand alone and sustain its immediate need like food and some personal needs. Each member keeps himself/herself healthy and strong. Cleanliness of the body and surroundings is necessary for some comfort and proper time of rest, after a hard day’s work.
A time for social interaction is needed and a time for solitude is a must. A time for rituals, like church and prayers binds the family together.
2. Thoughts shared
My mother loved her son-in-law like her own son. My husband loved my mother like his own mother. And now that they have both passed away, I can see how happy they lived sharing for my family and children.
She accepted the faults of my husband.
He respected the mother and put her into a pedestal.
She was happy to know how my husband worked hard.
He adored her non-perfect cooking.
When we got all together, he was laughing when my mother rearranged my stuff. She was laughing when he never let me go out the house. Whatever was it in their minds, everyone was laughing in the house, and we were all happy.
Respect in the home is very important. Good manners and right conduct must never be forgotten. This is what separates human from animals. Here, I remember my mother telling me about breeding.
Breeding is taught at home and acquired around. How one acquires proper manners, education, and culture depends how the individual copes up in the demands of every situation and the people around him/her. There is always a room for improvement, though.
The core family, the government, school, private institutions, church, and the community must support each life to meet a goal of its own. This goal must be to enhance the improvement of the human race.
True enough, the offspring must be better than the parents. In any form of diversity among individuals, everything and everyone must meet in charity and respect.
