I know of families whose members all live in the same community. They share the day to day. My family does not know what that is like. Being all together has its appeal to a family spread out like mine. But I am sure there would be drawbacks of such togetherness. There would be a few wrinkles to iron out. But I think we could make things lay nicely.
One thing about my family is that behind all our history, underneath all the idiosyncracies lies the desire for the best for each other. There is a common wish, may be at times masked by our individual quirks and opinions, but shared nonetheless.
The miles still divide us today, but with the help of pictures, music and internet wonder, I feel a little closer to my family this morning. This is my wish for you...

We have been so fortunate that ours is close all within 30 miles other than the oldest up until this summer.Daughter moved back this past spring and is now home for good after being Military and all over the US with her family. But now oldest granddaughter just moved to Chicago after graduating from college. going to Grad school there. And she loves it so am afraid she just may stay after grad school. And one of the grandsons joined the Marines and is now in California. And just a few weeks ago my oldest grandson was hired to start at Fords after the new year and will be leaving for Kentucky. So my family is spreading their wings and going out on their own. I hate seeing it.
What a neat idea. My son and his family live less than a quarter of a mile away; I feel so fortunate to have them close.ReplyDelete
Aww, so sweet...I love it. I love that song anyway but the pictures make it more special. Even the wrinkle heads : )ReplyDelete
