"A family is a unit comprised not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold."
~ Ogden Nash ~
Family is at once both our rootedness and our launching pad. Our families give us connection, history, and bloodlines, but they also push us from them with their knowing a bit too much. We must appreciate where we've come from, but be willing to continuously strike out on our own two feet.
I love my family, but I have my own life.
