Want a Happy Family – Remember the Good Times — 21 Comments

  1. I am always telling my son that! I tell him it’s important to focus on the good, not on the bad….sometimes he sounds like an old man, complaining, complaining 🙂

  2. It is so important to keep your family focused and happy. We do very similar things.

  3. There really is no one-size-fits all. I think you instinctively know what’s right for your family and you should go with it.

  4. Yes! Memories of the good times and past victories help us to make it through new trials and tribulations.

  5. It is great that enjoying each other’s company works so well for your family. It is something you can manage when you do have the time together.

  6. I make sure I take lots of pictures with and of my family because every picture has a good story to go with it. And every moment matters even if its just eating dinner together! We love doing a lot together but we all have our moments and different hobbies we like to do ourselves. Either way good or bad times, love and happiness always conquer and survive through the bad times.

  7. This is so important. Not every family enjoys the same things, but more important than all the “stuff” and material items is the memories that you make. Well said!

  8. I like the idea of figuring out what our family really enjoys doing together. Although, we really would be pretty easy. Honestly, any quality time together…all of us, including my husband who works 80+ a week would be precious time! Our 3 kiddos miss him a lot, so when we get him, we really enjoy that time whether it’s watching a movie, walking the dog, or actually going somewhere special.

  9. So true! Every family has different activities that make them happy, and they should just enjoy them!

  10. Yes, memories can help you feel better even when you are away from family for some reason.

  11. We enjoy board games also. I liked them as a child and enjoyed sharing that experience with my children. During the games, the children are off guard and we have snuck a lot of life lessons into games of Spelmanopoly.

  12. Great tips and I totally agree, what makes one family happy doesn’t necessarily work for another. Growing up, my family loved to play board games together, but so many of my friends thought that was ridiculous.

  13. Making good long-lasting memories with your family can really get you through troubling times. Memories have helped me get over being homesick.

  14. It;s important to remember the good times, thanks for the reminder! And looks like the circus is definitely a happy one for you guys!

  15. I also work hard to create memories with the kids. It isn’t just about coming up with things to do – it is about making them meaningful and memorable.

  16. Very interesting post and well written – I would be the type to sing and dance and still do, but my hubby watches and has fun with that – occasionally he will do a funny dance and that’s so cool. With my son growing up – we would go on walks and watch movies – and have great talks. Yep – every family is somewhat different and somewhat the same.

  17. I work hard to make memories with my kids. I want them to have great childhood memories.
