Mother’s Day is a chance for generations to get together, or maybe a time to reminisce about those no longer with us, who still hold a place in our hearts.
I see a piece of each of my family in me. I have gained the cheekiness of my Dad and unfortunately his terrible one-liner sense of humour. From my Mum, that sense of caution. Maybe in the future I will even learn how to give the ‘LOOK’ that only a parent can give a child.
Family and friends are like heart-beats. Each helps to form a solid life energy spurring us through dark days, and empty nights.
Our friends may change over years, but our family is always there, listening and advising. As Alex Haley once said, “In every conceivable manner the family is a link to the past and a bridge to the future”
Let’s enjoy that crossing. And even if we have to look back to remember those left behind on the bridge of time, remember we’re just showing them how the lessons they taught us will be carried in our hearts forever.
