Life just wouldn’t be the same without family. Whether it’s children, parents, grandparents, and even our pets, there’s a beautiful bond there that touches our hearts in a unique and special way. Here in the states, our holidays begin with Thanksgiving, which by itself is a rather beautiful idea. The notion of giving thanks for all of the important and wonderful things in your life is certainly a good thing to do, pretty much any time of the year. And no matter how delicious the food might be or how beautiful the house might be decorated, it’s really those moments spent with family that make it all truly special.

Though some of my family members are no longer with me, their memories are something I cherish, and I think about them every day. The rest are miles and miles or an ocean away and I don’t get to see them very often. But that’s the beautiful thing about family. No matter how far away, the connection is always as close as your heart.

    I loved listening to you sing and your story brought a tear to my eye. I’m certain your grandmother rested better for your visit, I also loved your description of puppy Phineas and giggled along with him!

      Thanks, Sandra! 😃💕 I’m so happy you enjoyed this one! Yeah, I figured this was the one time to add that bit of singing and I was terrified to do so, but figured I’d go for it! 😊

    I really enjoyed listening to your musings on kindness, and especially liked your Phineas story. Your grandma was right: You do have a beautiful singing voice.
