Family – Wordfull Wednesday


Family – [ famuh-lee, fam-lee ]

“You don’t choose your family.  They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”  ~Desmond Tutu


My Mum, Dad, sister and I in 1977.

“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

  1. 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.

  2. There is nothing more important and special than family. One of God’s best gifts. Family is always there no matter what, beautiful post.
