The Strength of Family

On the heels of Mother’s Day, it seems like an agreeable topic, no? Done right, there is no greater foundation and no greater strength than the family…

“Family traditions counter alienation and confusion. They help us define who we are; they provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world.”

~Susan Lieberman

“If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.”

~Bernard Shaw

“Friends are “annuals” that need seasonal nurturing to bear blossoms. Family is a “perennial” that comes up year after year, enduring the droughts of absence and neglect. There’s a place in the garden for both of them.”

~Erma Bombeck
