Sleepy Sundays: Family

Family Family

We don’t get to choose who we’re related to. Maybe that’s the beauty of it. When we’re broken down and busted up with simply nowhere to turn, in most cases, that’s who’s there – our family.

It’s understandable that some of us come from unsavory situations. It’s even more understood when we are far away from a loved one, or maybe they’re not around at all. Whatever the case may be, these are important relationships. Families don’t always have to be blood. Sometimes they’re our best friends, or more distant relatives, or a partner/spouse.

Much like my little bird friends up there, when the “weather” gets rough, we find a way out – together.

Author’s Notes: I’ve been dancing back and forth on taking some time off from CardCastles to spend some time with my own family. I’m still undecided. After all, you’re my family too.

What does family mean to you?

Have a tight-knit Sunday!

I smiled when I saw this picture and then realised that I smile every time I open one of your posts. I will miss you if you take a break, but sometimes we need to go back to basics and get away from the electronic side of our lives to discover who we are again.

That is certainly true, Dianne. A lot of health concerns came up with my son recently but he’s been checked out and he’s healthy. (Thankfully!) I’ll most likely write about it when I get back. I just think the holidays should be spent around my family very much this year.
I’ll definitely miss all of you but I’m also leaning towards yes with the blogging break. Keep the lights on in the place for me while on gone, my loves!


Family is what you make it. My “family” isn’t any longer. I have friends and even former in laws that treat me like they are there unconditionally, even if we don’t always agree.

I think breaks can definitely be good things. I will probably finish out “postaday” for this year (45 days!) but not sure what to do after that.

Even if you’re apart it’s still your family. Distance didn’t shatter that.

& Yes, breaks can definitely be a good thing. Considering I haven’t had much time to devote to writing or artwork lately (other than Sundays) its just not the same. I think I need to go away for the holiday season & just return in the new year. These next 2 weeks or so I’ll be making a final decision. (Of course I’ll still be around for STMND, though. You know I love you guys.)
