New places and people help us to grow and change. Family helps us to remain the same. Both are important in their own way. Family relationships are so often the simplest and the most complicated in life. And home is a word heavy with meaning. So, I’m feeling a bit reflective.
The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
