Family is the greatest gift God has given us

A family is one of the greatest gifts God has given to all living creatures on the earth including humans. It is a privilege to have a happy family as not everyone in the world has it.

The joy of living with your parents, fighting with your siblings over petty things can just make you smile the moment you think of it. In order to inculcate the values of a family in the students, we have composed some short essays for students.

Something so simplistic but yet so valuable. Something so dysfunctional but so beautiful.

There’s beauty in abnormality. Family is the start of something beautiful. It defines the beauty of us all. Whether that’s a smile, a laugh, or the overall appearance of someone, there is always beauty within it.

The best part of the concept of family is that it comes in all shapes and sizes (hence animals), and you do not have to be blood related to those in whom you call your family.

A family can be a friend, a pet, a work community or any type of community; if you consider that family, that is your family.

Some would say their family is not for everyone, while others have no relationship with their families at all; simply because of who they are individually, and who their family is as a whole.

If I learned anything about family, I learned the value of acceptance. You must allow people to be who they are to see their full potential; their full beauty.

In this world of doubt, insecurity, and fear, family might be the only thing that keeps one together, holding their arms open with love, no matter who they see themselves to be individually.

Whether that’s the teaching of a culture, or the gaining of a personality trait, family means much more than ‘togetherness.’

Family just gives you that extra push that your friends might not, they might tell you to take that chance, take that job, go on that trip, buy that purse, get that degree; and much more.

And that is the beauty of it. Family brings out the inner beauty in others when all the outside world sees is the eternal view of humans.
