“No ordinary work done by a man is either as hard or as responsible as the work of a woman who is bringing up a family of small children; for upon her time and strength demands are made not only every hour of the day but often every hour of the night.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. ” ~ Exodus 20:12
“What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” ~George Eliot

Your Friend, m.
It’s nice that you do have a loving family and it is a blessing.
SOme of us have toxic parents and we must make the difficult choice to not have them in our lives.
I’m so sorry to hear that Reb, I have friends in that situation and they’ve found a family among the amazing people in their lives.
There is nothing more important and special than family. One of God’s best gifts. Family is always there no matter what, beautiful post.
See you at #SCCTO and thanks for linking up!
