Family Hmm.. mmm

  • Family
    • Hmm….mmmm….
  • Family
    • Just the word brings forth emotions,
      • Memories and hopes for the future.
    • It is within family where life
      • Is experienced most intensely.
    • Within this group of folks you will
      • Have contact with for the rest of your days.
    • Acceptance, forgiveness. love,
      • All feelings are felt intensely.
    • Common history breeds familiarity.
      • They know you – You know them.
        • Not the image but
        • The real you beneath.
      • Under the cloak of the family.
        • There, all good and bad
        • Is remembered and shared.
      • With a bit of humor
        • Again and Again..
      • Hmm….mmmm….
        • Family

  • Just a peek underneath the covers of my huge family of aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, nieces, nephews, children, wife, ex-wife, ex-families. and others adopted as part of this family.  Family is the single place where you’re born with membership for the rest of your life.  Some may be mad at you today and tomorrow forgiven and back in good graces..  Dad had 13 brothers and sisters.  Mom had 3 siblings. So there was a lot of love to share.
