What Is Family Bonding?


Family Bonding; It's an indescribable feeling you get, and I will try to describe it the best way I can. Once you experience it first hand. You will agree, there is nothing like it. It is priceless, that no one could ever afford to take away from you.

Bonding is not just an immediate family word, it is something that makes us all family in one world united. It is a feeling, so deep inside you, that you just can't wait to bond more. The importance of family bonding is the trust, the sense of belonging. It is unforgettable. It is heaven on earth. It is peace. It is family connections. It is Laughter (Click for more on laughter). It is FAMILY LOVE!

Let me try to explain better through a short story:

For family bonding with strangers:

"One day, I was driving cross country. I pulled into a rest area, and walked up to the restroom. I noticed a car with a flat as I walked. After finishing my business, I start walking back. I notice this elderly lady standing by her car, looking at her flat. I also noticed, a lot of people just walking by and not one of them offer a helping hand.

I stopped and talked to her for a moment, found out that she was alone and not able to help herself. I offered to help her, even though I was in a hurry as everyone else. I could not just leave her there like that. I asked her if she had a spare, she didn't know or even where it would be. I asked her to open the trunk, luckily she had a spare.

I changed the tire for her, told her to go to the nearest station to get her flat fixed and remounted. She was so kind and wanted to pay me for helping her. I kindly refused the money and she insisted to the point, where she slipped five dollars into my back pocket, while I was putting the flat into her trunk.

She was such a sweet little lady, and the feeling of just helping her out, well, I will never forget it and neither will she. We formed a bond in that 10 minutes, that will last a lifetime."

Also try Reading (click for more on reading), a book to your child, or even your spouse at bedtime. It's relaxing and will go a long way in family bonding.

Like I said, family bonding is a feeling that is hard to explain, but worth more than anything else in the whole world. Make all your bonds memorable and you will agree, it is priceless.

Thank you and have a wonderful life.
