Well, I taught a class on Families CAN be Forever
last Sunday at church with emphasis on the word "can."
Such complex relationships there are in FAMILIES
as the children grow leave the nest and become independent.
Some never look back or remember when they came from.
Others linger near and return to interact regularly.
Parents once all important are sometimes forgotten,
eventually they age and depart-part of a shared history.
How interesting to watch nature repeat the cycle:
as birds mate, build a nest then lay their eggs.
Carefully guarded and watched over, soon the
little ones hatch and need to be fed and protected.
Too soon they are ready to learn to fly and be off
on their own to face their own dangers, mate and
begin families. Some will choose to fly solo through
their lives and forget their origins and roots.
