A sister is both your mirror – and your opposite.
Yes, Family, with its endless possibilities to create so much Happiness and to also create so much Chaos, sometimes at the same time. Human beings rule the planet not only because of the development of our brains but the development of our Families. We don’t just plop our kids out and keep walking, We raise our youngsters, invest a lot of time, money, love and frustration. And yet we do it. We continue the genetic impulse. We are born into a village, of moms and dads, aunts and uncles, grandmas and granddads who if we are fortunate we will become someday.
“When you look at your life the greatest happiness are family happinesses”
-Dr Joyce Brothers
Creating a Family is the greatest thing a human being will accomplish in their lifetime. It is something we all have in common, the rich and the poor are equal in this. A poor man can feel the Riches of Happiness with the family he has created and a Rich man can feel very poor indeed when he does not feel as much happiness as is possible. Happiness like Love does not have a price tag, but there is a price to pay if you have neither in your life.
Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!
Some of my fondest memories are of the nicest people I have ever met, my mom, my dad, aunts and uncles, grandma. Then later good friends that became the extended family, the one’s you choose or that chooses you. The kind of experience that makes you feel like you made a real connection, not the everyday casual encounter, but the real deal. The conversation that comes so easy, the warm smiles that seem so real. All those times of laughter and yes of tears, all the emotions you share with those close to you that are woven in the fabric of our lives.
One of the things that binds us as a family is a shared sense of humor.
We all experience the same thing as human beings in all walks of life and all cultures. We need each other, Happiness needs recycling, we need to Love and to be Loved. Families should generate this, which we show not only with our Holidays, Birthdays, but the time we take to pick up the phone or drop by and tell them how much they mean to you, tell them that you love them. This alone can create that warm cozy feeling of happiness in a person, and it didn’t cost a thing, just a little time. So make the time and recycle some Happiness!

I realized my family was funny, because nobody ever wanted to leave our house.
