Last December, Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies revealed the Jiménez family as LA FAMILIA DE HOY™. This family was chosen to represent the family values of the Hispanic community which included being active, multicultural and keeping up with the modern times. Juan, Biviana and their three children: Elisa, Diego and Benicio embody all of these qualities and definitely mirror what my family and I consider to be the epitome of the Latino family.
Like the Jiménez family, our family shares a special bond and we find ways to support each other and be there for one another whenever possible. Sometimes this includes making arrangements to pick up each other’s kids from school or sharing the cooking responsibilities during family gatherings and dinners. Family is very important to us and we make sure that we teach our younger generation about their roots and the traditions that have united us for decades.
My family has many other things in common with the Jiménez family such as the fact that we all live close by to one another. In 2004, my family and I purchased a multi-family home together so that we could pool our financial resources and make a better life for our children. We did it to be together, para estar juntos. Juan’s mother lives in their home to help with her grandchildren along with his siblings who also live nearby with their families.
Healthy Essentials is proud to present the Jiménez family as LA FAMILIA DE HOY™ as part of their ongoing commitment to providing families with the products to help them take care of one another. You can see my husband’s and my son’s favorite Healthy Essentials in the photos below.
Our family has always used Neosporin to help heal our boys’ wounds faster than just bandaging them alone. With a house full of boys, we regularly have our share of cuts and scrapes and protecting their injuries against infection as well as minimizing the appearance of scars are definitely a priority for us.
There is nothing more endearing than applying Neosporin to their skin while singing “Sana, sana, culito de rana…” This is an ages old song that has been used to comfort Latino children through any possible injury or herida that you could possibly imagine.
If there is one thing that I have learned about being a Familia De Hoy it is that it means finding the perfect balance between the family cultural traditions of the past and those of the present. After all, togetherness is defined as “warm fellowship between members of a family.”
Let’s Discuss: What do you think is the true definition of today’s family?
