Living as one special component in a large family – close and extended – I can tell you that as true as family being a great blessing, it is also a constant endeavour of trying to keep a harmonious balance between humans as different as day and night. Gorgeously rocky I’ll say that much. There’s always those that irk you.. those that you can never seem to agree with matters on.. several whom while having a fairly pleasant standing with – there will be squabbles; at times in the name of fun, at times deadly serious – always a form of bettering our understanding of one another and strengthening our love. We don’t often reflect on how much we depend emotionally on one another.. until adversity.
We don’t need to experience the pain to feel what they going through. Differences aside, arguments forgotten; we need one another. The waves of sadness and worry run through us as one.. we search for strength and comfort by a simple meeting of eyes.
In moments of hardship, the love and bond of a family glows like a bright star against a dark sky. I realize the power of love.. to love unconditionally and get through it together. To be strong, for myself and for those around me. To have faith – it will work out.
