Dear Me,

What an awesome weekend you've spent with family.
More stories to share someday.

But first, you need to catch up with your family here on the blogs.

Family's truly are so very important in this life.

The ones you see and keep in touch with all the time, the ones you only see when someone dies or gets married, and the ones you haven't seen in many, many years.

Then there's the ones you may never see....but you know they're there...or rather here, on the computer.

The ones who love you even though you may never so much as hear their voice or feel their touch. You know they're with you through all the good, sad and bad times. And they're only a few key strokes away....

What a lonely and empty life you would have without your family...
where ever they are.

Always remember that....

This is just so sweet and true.
Family is matter how they become family members.

Glad you had a nice weekend with your family to catch up and celebrate a life lived.

Vicki, this is beautiful and so heartfelt. "Family" can have so many dimensions and doesn't have to mean blood ties - as you have stated so wonderfully.

Love, life, Family........

I thought of you off and on Sunday, wondering how you were doing.

You took the words right out of my mouth with this post.
