We grew up searching and traveling for something elusive. It was as though something was lost and my Father was looking for it. As a Child, I never knew what it was that we were trying to find.
As I walk with my children through life I now know what we were looking for and where it is. It was right in our hand all the time.
What is it?
Quite simply family close by not just the brothers and sister and parents but all of the family. Grandparents, Uncles and Aunts and cousins. The big part of family.
The value of being with and watching your family grow day in and day out. The Sunday family Dinners, the rescue missions when your car breaks down on the highway, The Saturday afternoon working in the yard as a family, and yes there is even value in the coach potato moments watching some great movie together. What every healthy patterns your family has to stay in touch with the Whole family, Value it.
Family is something you have had since birth But, you know … it is very special. When they are close by, even sometimes a few streets away, it can be precious. It funny we spent so much time looking for something we had all along. We Just were too far away from them looking for “it.”
