A Family = A Team

Ouch!!! This sound is came out from our mouth, while the pain is on our thumb.

In our body, between hands, legs, head, eyes, ears, etc. , they are one team. One of our part of body pain, all our body will feel that pain.

Once, I cut my finger accidentally and it was very painful. It was not only my finger which feel the pain but all my body feel that pain. But it doesn’t mean that I cannot do it anything because of the wound, I still have to do what I have to do. So my other part of my bodies will need to support each other.

Another example is in sport team, such as soccer, when one of the player gets hurt, the other players will come over and encourage the player who gets hurt. Though one of the player got red card, and cannot continue the game, the others players will not blame each other and still have to continue the game and fight to become the winner. They need to work together as a team. They have one goal, it is a champion.

It is applied in our family life. Either happy or difficult circumstances have to be felt together as a family. Not all people want to share and feel with us when we have problem and need their help, but when it comes to a happy occasion, they will come to us and join us.

There was one time that TT was in pain, he cried and JJ was there. I think JJ felt confuse and I saw that his eyes filled with tears. But he tried to be though and start to give TT toys. And sometime he even can made a joke for TT.

Same thing applied to TT, sometime when his brother cry he will give his brother toys and started to entertaining his brother in the hope that his brother stopped crying.

Whenever I feel too tired, my husband will help me taking care of the kids. So that we are working together just like a team.

I am glad I have my husband and my two sons in my life. When I am happy, sad and confuse they will always be there for me. My sons will always try to make me smile and laugh when I am sad, and my husband will always try to comfort me.

Of course there were some misunderstands, that sometime happened between us, but thanks God that we are still one until now.

It was one time I have a quite big problem and I might made a wrong decision, but three of them are still there for me and support me on their different ways. This is what I have now. A team and yes, they are my family. 

How about you? Would you like to share with me about your TEAM?



  1. I love that you look at your family as your team! That is what a family is supposed to be, but so many people forget that fact. Sometimes I forget, and then get frustrated when my husband or kids try to help me out. “I just want to be alone!” I think, but I need to realize that they are my team, and it is a good thing for them to help during the tough times. 🙂

    1. Hi April, it happens to me sometime. When I have problem, I feel like I want to be alone too. My kids and my husband will always approach me and try to make me smile whenever I have problem 🙂 I will do the same to my husband and my kids.
      Yes our kids and husband are our team 🙂 Thank you for sharing April 🙂

  2. Hi, Yulia. I enjoyed your post. I never really thought about how our mouth voices our pain even though it is our thumb (or whatever) that feels it. That was a good illustration.

    I wanted to tell you about my team, too, but I knew it would be long so today I wrote it up as a post on my blog. Here is a link to it: Hasten Home this week: My support team.

    I always enjoy hearing about your family. 🙂

  3. I definitely think of my family as a team. I also think of my group of female friends as another kind of team. We support each other and root for each other. I’m very glad to be part of both of my teams!

  4. I love your choice of photo… It made me smile. Having your family on your team is very important… 🙂
    TY for your patience as I have been adjusting to a changed schedule in my life … Glad to comment again. 🙂
