Proverbial Family

We are born in a family that we did not ask for, and we can’t trade them for another.  Families are complicated, and they are the most important thing in the world.  The relationship we have for our family may be filled with love or skeleton in the closets.   And if we can’t get rid of the skeleton, we might as well make them dance.

  1. well-said. on a somewhat lighthearted note, while i was looking at greeting cards in a card shop, i once came across on with something like the following sentiment on the outside: A note of encouragement. Neighbours and strangers come and go, but family is forever. And on the inside: Oh, I am so sorry. Happy thoughts, happy thoughts!
     
    that one made me lol, seriously. too funny – although sad too. in any case, family is an incredible gift. I am grateful for mine. thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Kris, I always say that thoughts in my mind: people come, people go, most of the time they go and went!. Hardi-har. There is jest in that quote and I share your humour.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
