Last summer, our family had a family reunion in Las Vegas. Families from Arizona, Washington and Hawaii came together having so much fun that our children who were graduating from high school decided to combine their graduation party together in Hawaii (just so they could see each other again before our next five year reunion)!
Since that time, we've planned from reserving the hall...
It is the love we have for one another that is vital in keeping the bond intact through the good times and bad.
It is not a requirement. It is not a inconvenience. It is not a "when you feel like it" feeling.
It is an everyday nurturing that thrives on the ebb and flow of giving and receiving unconditional love.
Our family knows this and it is hard work but in the end, hopefully everyone especially our children will continue the legacy that we leave with them and the upcoming generations that nothing is more important than relationships.
