« Slides, Rides, Family Time, and So Much More! | Main | I Always Wondered »



I know this was hard to write. I can relate so much to this post. It saddens me when family members are critical of one another. How I wish we could all count on our family members to be our biggest champions, our biggest supporters, our biggest encourages. I remain thankful for friends who are like family and for family members who are there for me. I love you and I consider you my friend AND my family. I am blessed to have both in you.


This was not an exhausting post to read nor was it difficult to read. I read FREEDOM and TRUTH which is liberating. Truly...LIBERATING. Relationships are messy. People are messy. We all need to grow up and as you say OWN when we make mistakes. Being someone who tends to be more sensitive and am now 51 years of age - I realize that I can take a deep breath and listen to someone and not take things personally. There are pressures in all families and sometimes it is best to keep the mouth shut and move on. Great work Carmen. Many blessings to you and your family.
