a photo worth celebrating...

it's a tradition
photos of the kids
sometimes...


us parent's too
it was easier when
they were young
all under the same roof
then they age
and off they go
to their own worlds
with a wife and a girlfriend
it's hard sometimes
knowing just
how far to push
when to let go
how to stay connected
add in a grudge
 or two
a betrayal
hurtful words
and life gets even
more
 complicated
and at times confusing
this little family
is fractured right now
heartbreaking
yet necessary
with time comes healing
maturity
perspective
and hopefully
 new found energy
to move forward
to create new beginnings
thankful for the
happy times
such as this picture
taken on sister's birthday
for those memories
keep your heart
beating
