timing can be sooo cool.
i've kinda been thinking since i mentioned my
cosmic brother about the family i built for
this morning i was thinking the only piece of
the family i haven't gotten is a father figure.
and i think that's cause men are too tough.
specially older men. i can't seem to get them
to understand i'm not tryin' to start THAT
kinda relationship with them. grin.
so, i think that piece may never get filled.
but i've got a mom figure, a sister figure,
a brother figure, several grandparent figures
for the kids. i thought of that as i walked
back home from my elderly neighbor's this
morning. the kids have more grandparents than
most people do!! i have people who feel like
family that i've never even met in person. it's
just the coolest thing...
and then i got this quote in from a friend for
the love chain we're doin':
"The bond that links your true family is not
one of blood, but of respect and joy in each
other's life. Rarely do members of one family
grow up under the same roof."
(that's from richard bach who if you haven't read,
you may want to.)
oh, did i like that.
RESPECT AND JOY IN EACH OTHER'S LIFE.
wow, that's something to think about, i think.
wanted to throw that out there for anyone else
who's had to rebuild.
it ain't all bad, is it?!!!
