10 Ways to Do Something Special for Your Family
If you are out of work, take time to do special things with your family. What you do is not as important as the fact that you do in fact do things with and for your family. Check out the following list of things you can do while out of work:
– volunteer at your children’s school
– make breakfast for the family each morning
– create a family game night
– participate in religious activities with the family
– watch television as a family
– play video games with the children
– go for walks around the neighborhood
– talk with the family
– have good conversations with your family around the dinner table
– spend time taking family photos to capture every day activities to save for later
None of these activities are world-changing or earth shattering. However, these activities are the kinds of things that happy families do together. These are the kinds of activities that create memories that family members laugh about and tease each other about for years to come. In addition, when your period of unemployment is over and you are back at work long hours each day, these activities will give you good memories that will help you to make it through some of the tough days.

You can find serenity in knowing, when it comes to families, the grass is not always greener on the other side. Often when I am out and about with my children, complete strangers will walk up to me and tell me how well-behaved my children are, how mannerly they are or how lucky I am to have them. I always smile and say thank you. I smile because it is nice to be told that my children are behaving within acceptable societal norms. I smile because the words are a compliment to the work I am doing as a mother. And sometimes, just sometimes, I smile because I know all the chaos at home that lead to the beautiful moment the person complimenting my children is now enjoying.
