Every family has them, that special something that makes some people love us and some people roll their eyes. Well, my family is no different. We have a quirk or two or ten…
The particular quirk that I’m thinking of has to do with unity. Maybe. The bottom line is we don’t like doing things apart from each other. In other words, when one person can’t participate, nobody wants to participate. Early in our marriage it used to make my husband so mad when I would suggest he go ahead and do something without me. It’s not like we don’t ever do things apart from each other, but we prefer to be together if it’s appropriate.
Being as my sons are getting older it is happening more and more where they either can’t do things with us, or have to do things that have nothing to do with the rest of us. It’s okay, we don’t mind. But if one person is sick and can’t go somewhere, none of us wants to go! Unity. We are in this “thing” together! I think sometimes this little quirk of ours might make people feel bad or question our reasoning. I don’t really have an answer to that, it’s just who we are and how we like things. That’s why we can get a great family picture, because we like being together!
It might be silly and unrealistic to live life this way, but it’s our way, something that makes our family unique.
What makes your family unique? I would LOVE to know!
