“Family is not an important thing. It is the only thing.”

~ Michael J. Fox

This may seem an odd thing to be starting today’s post with, but it is so true!

You are who you grew-up with and I do not get nearly enough time to spend with my family.

This can hardly be surprising, because my family is spread-out across the planet! Each of us, in my immediate family, have our own area codes. We each have our own lives and travel in our own circles.

The wonderful thing is that no matter how varied all of our lives are, we all have one thread in common – it reaches back and binds us all back to the same history.

Yes, I love my family and do not get enough time to make it back to Minnesota to see them all as often as I would like. But they are always with me in spirit!

Wherever you are today, I hope you will reach-out to tell the people in your family that you love them!
