My Family Memories

It is a frequently used dialogue in Bollywood which says that a house is made into a home with the people who live in it, and with the love and bond they share. However clichéd, this is surely true. With the increasing use of social networking sites and distance between individuals, imlee works as a catalyst between the family members. 🙂 It lets you connect exclusively with your family members and stay in touch with them. BlogAdda in association with imlee.com, gets you an exciting contest, which lets you relive your family memories. 

Participate and Win!

 

From pulling your sister’s leg, to teaching something new to your dad, there are many lovely things that happen within the family. In this contest you just have to share those memories with us. 🙂

Here’s what imlee says:

  1. The incident I have written about has all the sweet, sour, spicy and bitter memories of my childhood. Though just a simple happening in the humdrum of life, it has left some impact on me as an adult.
    Today, my Mom and Sister have lost their lives to Breast Cancer, along with my Dad who though suffering from Hodgkin’s cancer died naturally. Their memories have now become a treasure. My sister was a partner with me in everything that happened in my life before our teens. Relationships are not always sweet and fun, it has its darker sides too, but no matter what happens, how angry we are, we cannot stop loving our families.

  12. My sister and I had been planning an international holiday together ever since we were young. But Life intervened–first marriage, then kids, then the myriad responsibilities. Our dream got buried under the rubble of everyday living. Finally, with our children married off and no husbands to speak of, we decided to take the plunge. Where else could it be?

    It HAD to be Bangkok!
