Make a point of scheduling some date time with each member of your family on a regular basis. If you are married make it a priority to go on a date regularly, to get out of the house and give each other undivided attention (and maybe even have some fun). If you have children, this is a great way to show you value them.
It may be a simple as a one to one breakfast on Saturday at Maccas or for the teens, maybe a coffee or hot chocolate out at a nice cafe. You may not solve the problems of the world, but you make yourself available and show how much they mean to you. And how about praying for these times before you go out, that they will be rich and that your family member will be blessed.
