#SOL20: Family

Family.

That group.

Quiet

Loud

Crowding your space

Giving you space

Freedom to stretch and grow

Freedom to learn and roam

Alone

And together

Celebrating family . . .

Blood relatives

Celebrating milestones . . . births, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations.

And friends

“Framilies” also celebrating milestones.

Who in your family tree are you celebrating? 

Who are you quietly supporting? 

Who are you loudly applauding? 

Where does your family take you?




Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. I feel the tug and release of family. On Friday night I organized a surprise party for my husband’s birthday. Friends gathered at a restaurant and then we all went dancing. Then on Saturday I traveled to New Orleans to babysit both babies while my kids went to a Mardi Gras ball. Back home today and again family tugs at my day off. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
    Are you doing the SOLC this year. Talk about tug and release. I can’t decide!

    1. Margaret,
      What fun family times – and recognizing so many stages! Yes, to SOLC!

  2. Just had the BEST week with family and friends – love how we fall into comfortable patterns and yet still surprise on another. Feel lucky to include as a friend in my life.

    1. Clare, so true that our patterns are comfortable! So many roles we can fill as friends and family!

  3. Family – at times they drive us crazy but they are always there for us.

    1. Absolutely! Always takes a village!

  4. Family! My life line of love and support. I couldn’t survive without them!

    1. Exactly, Christine! So necessary!
