This word “family” took on a new meaning when I was married more than eight years ago. Building a new family is not just a 2-person affair, it also extends to include my own family, parents-in-laws and relatives. And that’s a Big family!

It took me a while to adjust to my roles as a wife, daughter-in-law and two years down the road, a mother. It’s never easy having to juggle the many roles and having to split my time with my extended families.

Family time is precious. Relationships grow and flourish when we spend quality and quantity time together. My husband and I are thankful that we were able to bring our own parents for overseas trips together. It not only helps to strengthen the ties between us and our parents, our parents can get to know one another better too.

Dot is fortunate to have grandparents whom she could interact with. How else would my child learn how to respect elderly if she does not have much opportunity to interact with the elderly?

A closely knitted family needs huge doses of love, patience, grace and forgiveness. Relationships are not built overnight. Family time needs to be protected and scheduled.

Families for Life Celebrations, a family event is a great opportunity for us to bring multi-generational families together. It will be happening on 13-14 September 2014 (Saturday / Sunday) at Singapore Sports Hub from 3pm to 9.30pm.

We’ll be there! Will we see you there?

About Families for Life
First launched in 1985, National Family Celebrations (formerly known as National Family Week) is an important annual national event to celebrate and reinforce the importance of the family, championed by the Families for Life Council (FFL) (previously National Family Council), with strong support from Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF).
 
Renamed as the Families for Life Celebrations (FFLC’14), this year’s event is of special significance as it is the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family (IYF) which is celebrated once every 10 years and celebrates the importance of family.
