One of the things that make me happy is our family day. Why? Because family is one of the priceless treasures we should cherish.
Studying the Bible together is one of our ways to strengthen our family ties. Aside from hanging out inside the house together during stormy days and play some classic games or have a movie marathon while sipping chocolates and hotcakes, as much as possible, we try to eat together, so that we could chat and update one another on how our days gone in school, work and with friends. When one member is out-of-town, we always keep in touch, my dad really showed us how important to him to check on us, and that we update him every now and then on where are we, what we do, when we’ll be home. He even gave each of us a post-paid phone. We also love to do picnics during holidays, we love to travel together.
In the end, doing things together as a family really keeps the bond stronger. And personally, I think these traits helped me against peer pressure, and now I’m happy I don’t have vices.
