Something My Mom Tore Out of a Book

Family is everything. It defines you – the heart of your spirit, the heritage of your smile, not only the colour of your eyes but how they see the world. You are bound by kinship. You add you own link to the chain, and that’s where you strengthen or weaken what you’ve been blessed – or burdened – with. That’s where you use the indefinable quality that belongs to you, alone, the bit of uniqueness you pass on to your children for good or bad, the part of you that will always be separate from those who share your name, you blood, and your past.
