The wonderful traits of being in a lovable family

The wonderful traits of being in a lovable family.

Families, the pinnacle of virtues, the support to a household. Being in a family may be in a roller coaster but then again, that's why we're here. To enjoy the ride. Knowing what makes a family may help tell what doesn't make a family. Thus, resolving the issue resulting in a, "Perfect" family.

Most families are comfortable acting natural in front of each other. They can laugh, cry, smile and frown with each other showing a perfect bond. This allows them to show any amount of emotion at will. Their bond is like no other. If a child came across a terrible problem at school (a bully for example) the child would easily be able to talk about it with their family. Being able to not hide secrets within their family helps break down all walls of anxiety.

One of the most important virtues in a stable family is love. Love is one of the reasons why you are able to forgive and forget a problem that one of you fellow relatives caused. Love mixed with forgiveness creates an unbreakable relationship between you and your family. Say you failed a test and your scores were unbelievably lower than the Mariana trench. Well, although you may have got a growl, chances are their love was not affected in any way (Just their mood).

"Mum, I was the one who broke the glass cup…." That very sentence although shows that the character has told his mum that he broke the glass cup, it also tells, well..shows something else. It shows that the person is honest. Honesty is the act of telling the truth. If you broke a glass cup, admitting it to your family is called honesty. Honesty is kind of the step before forgiveness as it's usually the reason you would have to be forgiven.

Finally, the most hereditary virtue. Respectfulness. Respecting the elders/everyone was a virtue passed down/taught through discipline or pure common sense by our family. Without any respect where would our religion lead to? Would we still worship God? Will we treat the elders in a proper way? Well, with respect these questions are answered. With respect we would be able to have an infinite amount of faith towards God. We would be able to treat the elders with love and compassion. This is what makes families special. They are most likely the reason to why we have good manners.

It is through family members that we find our true selves. They help shape ourselves to be the best we can be. They inspire us, teach us and learn from us. It's like at the start of this explanation……..Families are the pinnacle of virtues.

The treasure box

As I lay in the ever blinding snow with my father I couldn't help but feel overcome with
dread and fear as if I was sinking into darkness. I sunk into the snow trying to comfort myself
to sleep telling myself that all is a facade and that the outcome, the end of my life would be far
greater than my current situation Despite my fighting spirit I was broken down into tears eventually
crying myself to sleep. As the sun rose, my spirit settled resulting in me feeling empty hearted. As
I attended the funeral I noticed that the surrounding villagers became just blank faces. I felt alone.
Until I heard a whisper lighter than a breeze. The words that were being spoken widen my eyes like
a reaching hand from heaven impulsing he away from the darkness, launching me into the sky.
He said, "I will always be with you".

Leaving the village (Narrative)

I can smell the polluted air, the ashes of friends and family. My ears can pick up the sound of
cries coming from the suffering. I can see the never ending trail of footprints left by the villagers.
I feel uncomfortable as the snow swallows my feet.

My belongings are packed, I'm ready to leave. I see flames emerging from a distant building,
glowing in the ever coldest night. I myself feel fine but my appearance would say otherwise.
Not long after leaving the village I start to stumble. Blinded by snow I struggle to know where I am going.
Despite the mountains of snow I feel heat climbing into my body. With the immense heat I
couldn't help but remove layers of clothing. I now only have a t-shirt and shorts on. I continue to
walk before stumbling and falling unconscious.

I wake up in a bed, confused, not knowing where I am. I seem to be in a small room surrounded by old
family photos. On my right I see a fireplace with emerging flames engulfing the fire wood.
There is only one door, and it's opposite to me on the other side of the room. I swiftly remove the layers
of blanket and slowly approach the door. Before reaching the door, I hear a squeak. The door
knob twists and a person opens the door. 

I quickly analyse my surroundings hoping to find some sort of weapon. I approach the fireplace as
I see a pile of wood stacked onto the wall. In a rush I grab a piece off the stack and turn around to see
not a monster, guard or man but a little child.

"Follow," says the boy quietly as he turns and exits the room. Still holding the wood I followed the
boy out of the room and into some sort of kitchen. There, many people are seated and standing staring
at me.

An elderly person walks forward out of the pile of people and explained that I was
lying in the snow right next to the entrance of their village. They assumed I had hypothermia so
they relocated me to the only available room. Thanks to these villagers my life was saved. Everybody
in the village came to welcome me and by their faces, it seemed that they were pleased to see me.

I'm still planning to find my way home but for the meanwhile…….. I'll stay.
