Joy of living together

Joy of living together
We just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, it’s a great feel of being together all these years. We started life with great optimism and expectation from each other. When I look up my life, it appears, all these days passed in short span of time. The experiences during difficult times taught us that we can conquer the worst if we are together and helping each other. Togetherness gives the strength and motivation to face any challenges in life.

Though I look up life with positivity, it’s difficult to pass through each day with optimistic in this ever changing competitive environment. At times, I seek support from my family; it could be a simple talk over a dinner or going for a long weekend. It gives me immense strength to feel recharged to face the World. It really helped me to overcome many challenges, obstacles through innovative approach for big turnaround.

There are many memorable days in these years to cherish about; the first day when my son went to school was one among them. As a parent, it was a great experience, memorable moments in our life. I still remember the efforts we put together in preparing our son, educating him on basics, finding good school, getting admission, buying necessities, arranging transportation, it’s a long process. Though I was at work for long hours, I managed to find time to get all things done. I would say, it was a motivation within me pushed hard to find time. We were expecting long crawl on the first day as most kids cry getting into new environment, but to our surprise, our son entered the school with joy and was busy in finding new friends. We felt relieved and happy that he started his education career with lot of enjoyment. As always, the smile on his face brings cheer enthusiasm and it motivates me to overcome any stress.

I know there are many parents complain that their kids not going along with them and being adamant when they grow up. It’s not simply blaming the kids but as a young parent, we need to spend our quality time with kids every day. This creates the feel of togetherness and this sense will be stored in their mind forever thereafter. Many parents says they are busy at work, spending long hours at office, hence they couldn’t find time to be with their kids. They feel proud that they have provided Housing, education, toys and foods for their kids, but kids’ need their attentive time.

I can understand that it’s difficult to find time everyday in this high demanding work environment. But, we can manage to get this time by proper planning our daily schedule. Early days, I was not that great in this subject, but I have cultivated this habit looking at the long term benefits for my son. Once you start practicing it, you will experience the happiness which will motivate you to find time and you start realizing the real joy of life. Lets’ start feel the pleasure of togetherness and lookup life for the ever ending happiness.


  1. Congratulations on your 10th Wedding Anniversary.

  2. Now a days kids are happy to go to school.
    Happy 10th Wedding Ann.

  3. Wishing you the very best!
    You would have many more lovely years of togetherness!
    Sometimes it would feel that we had met only yesterday, and sometimes we wonder, how the years have slipped by.
    I used to wonder, when I saw my parents and many others like them celebrate their 40th and 50th anniversaries, and here I am also in my 35 th year of marriage with my husband: it feels so awesome!
    How time flew, I don't even bother to ponder, I am just loving the life I have in my present.
    I am sure you both had a wonderful day together. Be always happy.

  4. Happy anniversary!! I didn't have kids, but I have 3 grown stepkids who, despite being raised in utter chaos, have turned out to be really good kids. Their mother stayed home with them when they were young, which meant my husband was working 60 hours a week to provide for them. Needless to say that imploded after 10 years and then despite his best efforts to get time with them, he was constantly thwarted. It's been a long road, but their relationship is finally repaired. But it wasn't for his lack of trying to spend time with them.

  5. Congratulations on 10 years of marriage!

    Yes, children need us - the most of anything else. They want our attentive time and it's important to etch out that time for them.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Congratulations on your ten year anniversary... that is wonderful :)

  7. Happy tenth...did you know that the traditional gift is tin/aluminum? I didn't until a minute ago. :)

  8. Right on! Time invested in those you care about, be it your spouse, or child, or parent or friend is the best investment one can make in this life.

  9. Beautiful, happy congratulations on your 10th wedding.

  10. Congratulations on your anniversary and ten years of family togetherness. Here's to many more.

  11. One of the big problems in our country now are the single-parent families/homes. Kids are not being raised right --and there's no role models or supervision or boundaries... This causes many problems in kids' lives...

    I grew up when family was important. We ate together, taked to one another and just enjoyed the 'togetherness'...

    Times have changed in my 72 years---and I'm not sure it's a good thing...

    Glad you are making it work...

  12. Congratulations!!! These are words of wisdom. I wouldn't trade my time with my son for anything. It wasn't easy, but I made sure we had dinner together every night, I attended school functions, participated in his school activities and attended field trips. :) I treasure all these memories...

  13. Wonderful words written here. Congratulations on 10 years of marriage!
