Family Hmmm mmm

Family - Just the word brings forth emotions. Memories and hopes for the future. They know you - You know them. Not the image but, The real you.

Just the word brings forth emotions,
Memories and hopes for the future.

It is within family where life is
Experienced most intensely.

Within this grouping you will
Have contact with for the rest of you 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..

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 the single place where your 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.

@Melody, Cher, you are right the poem does not recognize the extended family. I had many aunts, uncles, and cousins that were not part of the real family tree. That does not make them any lesser part of family.

Thank you for making me feel welcome in this BrooWaha and writing family. I am very grateful. I send you blessings and wishes for a joyful holiday season.
