Family – The Circle of Life

“Families are like fudge… mostly sweet with a few nuts.”

– Anonymous

As one gets older

the family member ranks

above

start to disappear

while the younger family

grows in number.

It’s inevitable

the circle of life

an ebb and flow

a continuing saga

legacy

all woven together

with tradition

DNA

and love.

Sometimes we let busy lives

interfere

with family time

then later regret

not remembering the stories

healing the wounds

letting go of the past

or fostering relationships

while there’s still time.

When we

remember those who’ve

gone before with love

speak their names

tell their stories

laugh

they remain in

our broken hearts

that heal

a little more each day

as their love

shines through.
