    What makes you proud of your family members?

      For one, the fact that I know that none of them will ever make a scene in public. They know how to act in society. Yeah, I know it sounds dated, but it's important to trust your family in that regard. Otherwise you can't go to cool places.

      Another is that I know they'll always be there for me no matter what. Whether its picking up the dead bird in the road because I'm afraid, or its pulling me out of traffic and saving my life, I know they'll watch over me.

      And of course, the love and respect.

    It is the simple things that make me proud. For instance, when family members offer to help clean up if they are visiting, or if they want to help to carry things for you. Those things make me so proud and happy to be in that kind of family that cares for each other.  Also, if my family members get some kind of award of any kind, I am happy that they earned it fairly.

    I'm so very proud of my brother, Texas Poet Laureate Steven Fromholz (who is also a singer/songwriter of long standing). Steven's never had any other career than that of an entertainer and when he had a massive stroke in 2003 his doctors said he was totally disabled and his career was over. For most people that would have been the end but within two years Steven had taught himself to walk, talk and play guitar again -- and even  began writing new songs. I've been proud of Steven from childhood, and certainly proud of his career, but more than that -- I'm proud of him as a man of conviction, courage and character. Not only is he entertaining and writing again but devotes his time to charitable causes like closed head injury groups and shares his knowledge of poetry and music with school children. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to see the true merit of another human being.

    Pride comes of family members when I see their hard work and the accomplishments they have made in life.
    Most of all, I am proud of those who have taken Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

      That is nice Froggy213...even angels, as in Luke 15:10 "In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

    We are still bond together even though we have our own families. Seeing each and everyone has their own success in lives and families makes me feel proud.

    Bottom line is that everyone is still living a healthy lifestyle.

      Yes. Bonding is my best gift as families. Not forgetting the best of health which money can't buy.

    My family members are my extension in this world and since I know love, respect and the LORD JESUS reflects in our faces, I am so proud of them. It's like the world sees me in them and them in me. Just a perfect reason we all have a family to call our own. Great question, loved it. Thank you.

      Thank you for answering it Tonipet. I am happy to know this and it makes me also proud that your family is where they should be at the beginning as in Genesis 1:27
      God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female

    I'm proud of my dad for going back to school when he was in his 60s.  He signed up for overseas military straight from high school and at that time he didn't feel like he was a great student.  Now he has a college degree and was a teacher until he retired.  Very cool, and he did something that was a personal challenge.

      I am proud of your dad also! Very nice share Ciel Clark. "There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1)).

    Their unconditional support is the most important feature. Only hard time will disclose the reality that their support and love is unconditional or not.

      Ritambhara Om, how great to know that out there somewhere true love still exists: 1 Corinthians 13:7 talking about love says: "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." Blessings to and yours more each day.

    I am so proud of my mom and dad.  They both have been such an inspiration to me throughout the years.  We went through many hard times down the road of life, but they have always stuck it out when the road was rough and weary. They never have given up! Thank you for sharing such a great question!

      Wonderful hazelwood4! You are stepping on good ground "Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise" says in Ephesians 6:2.
