Hidden Deep Within
Family remains the foundation that keeps us strong. We need each other to give us strength, confidence that we can succeed, knowing we are loved for who we are, someone to turn to in our time of need and for every other reason imaginable. When we give up on those that make mistakes, when we don't teach kindness, forgiveness and respect, the family breaks down. We are only human after-all and we are prone to make the same mistakes of all those that came before.
We can try to teach our children the lessons that we have learned, but they never take the more experienced advice and therefore go forth and make the same mistakes we made. All we can do is to be there to catch them when they fall. Just think, if we had the ability to generically pass on the lessons of the past as animals do.
Times have changed, yes. We have more wonder drugs keeping us living longer and healthier. The world has gotten smaller for we have better roads so we can drive further and planes fly around the globe faster than ever before. Housework is done more quickly today with all the modern conveniences, and we don't have to grow our food, we just go buy what we want. No need to make our cloth or spin the yarn. We have more time to do things that we enjoy.
