family

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

simply what it is

"
Three placements
at the table
where once
there were four.
And now
we are family
more than we
ever were
before.

Thank you so much for stopping in and reading and reviewing.
So simply stated, yet there is lifetimes that went into each and every word. I feel the importance of these words of family, set around the dinner table, which is where I and most others would feel is the heart of the family and knowing there will be more family times to be seen around that very same table. Beautiful words KL.

Thank you. Yes, in this case, it was the only way.
It's amazing how cutting the bad out of your life can make such a difference in your happiness. This has a touch of sad, but with that ending, it is perfect and beautiful. xo :)

Well in twenty-one words you have been able to change the rules of arithmetic. Point well taken.

Death brings those that are left closer together. Mortality has a way of making us focus on the people who are really important to us doesn't it?
