Family Ties? Where Did The Dream Go?
Tuesday, July 01, 2008
We think we have our families all figured out when we are young. How many children we want, what our children will look like when they are born, what they'll look like as adults. What kind of a relationship we will have with them when they grow and the relationship we'll have with their children. But that youthful dreams seems to shatter as time goes by and they grow into adults. They each go off in their own direction, sometimes far away from us and we only get to see them once in a while, maybe only hear from them once in a blue moon. Hardly ever get to see our grandchildren or be a part of their lives. Where did the dream go? Where did that loving close family good? The one I dreamed of? The weekend suppers where we would all gather together to enjoy laughter and memories. Where did they all go? The family holidays that we would share together, where did the all go? They were all just youthful dreams that only existed in our minds not in reality. How sad it all is that so many negative things go on in our world today to take away the family unit. Our son's and daughter's our off fighting wars, they are moving so far away from us and now we won't even be able to fly to visit our children and grandchildren any more because of the gasoline prices. Only the rich will be able to travel. Every one has such busy lives any more. No TIme For Family. No Time For Memories of Family. It's all to sad to think of sometimes. The longing for that youthful dream of Family and Memories. Where has it all gone to? It's time to search our hearts and minds. It's time to take action to bring our families back together. It's Time To Take Time Out for FAMILY!
