The word “housework” can turn a Saturday morning into a weekend drudgery. There is mopping, vacuuming, and scouring. What if there was a way to change the homemaking skills and chores into something pleasant and actually enjoyable?

Isn’t it amazing how times have changed? I remember watching “Leave It To Beaver” when I was little. Everything just seemed simpler some how. The dad was there every morning drinking his coffee and reading the paper while everyone else was getting ready for the day. The kids left for school and the dad left for work. In the evening the kids came home, then the dad came in, and everyone enjoyed each others company. My home life was nothing like that show, but even then, it was simpler than it is now for many of today’s families.
There’s really no better way to enjoy a sunny, summer afternoon than a warm and friendly family picnic. It’s the warm sun, a soft breeze, some home made sandwiches -made just the way you like them- the company of your loved ones, and about a million uninvited ants. That’s the snag in the plan every time. You lay out your favorite blanket only to find your food and family covered in a tiny, six-legged army before you know it. Well, there are always sensible alternatives, and for this particular problem a good solution is utilizing park benches rather than running for the hills.
We learn the value of friendship from a very early age. True friendship is unconditional: it is an enigma – selfless loving and giving. Perhaps we are too busy pursuing our careers that we tend to ignore the most beautiful thing in our lives: love and friendship. Everyone has different ideas about relationships and the approach may differ. It helps one to know that there are ‘givers and takers’ in this world and a role reversal is quite unlikely. Friends may disappoint you sometimes by not living up to your expectations. One who feels that he or she is putting more into relationships need not feel nobler as others may not feel the same. Before you judge someone it is prudent to consider that he or she may be incapable of love or friendship in the same way. Therefore, it is the interpretation of the measure of love or friendship that is under scrutiny; perhaps the person who realizes this has earned the right to be noble.
Stop and think a moment . . . Do you feel that you are a success at what you do? Do you feel fulfilled? Are you happy? Do you love what you do for a living? Do you love your career or job? Are you one of those people who go around smiling all the time, always in a good mood, and always have great and interesting things going on in your life?
Over the years you start forming relationships with a lot of people starting with family and then friends. The friendship that you form begin at very young age and at all ages you keep on accumulating friends but as you grow older you also start to lose friends, some simply because of lack of time, some over little issues and some friendships by the nature they are formed are transitory in nature.
When first thinking about starting a family, there are a number of things that both parents have to think about before going ahead with it. These sorts of things have to do with whether the parents are really ready to raise a family yet, where will the kid be going to school, how are they going to bring up the kid and how do both members in the family believe the kid should be raised. There are also considerations to be made regarding the health of the parents, such as whether they are capable of looking after the kid and if the woman is physically healthy enough to have a child.
Love has no constitution. However it has its own self formulated golden rules, which must not be overstepped. Valentine should not be the only time to give your relationship some therapy. Make everyday a valentine day. The extent to which you love your partner is not measured by the amount of gifts and flowers that you send them but by those little and minor things done every day. The power of touch can be underestimated but it communicates volumes when put into use. Touching each other can make a tremendous difference within a relationship. Touch your man’s arm during conversation or gently pass your hand over her cheek. Give his shoulders a gentle rub after a busy and taxing day at work. They sound trivial but they pass a message of how much you care in volumes to make your love last.
Look at a strong family and chances are, you find one with strong family traditions. Whether it is everyday routines or ways they celebrate holidays, activities that the family does, or how they celebrate special occasions such as Birthdays, these family rituals bring a sense of belonging and familiarity to family members.
