Family

Cousins Are…
Cousins are cozy
Wherever they’re from;
They feel like your family
Whenever they come.
Some people have many;
Most people have some.
Cousins are cozy
Wherever they’re from.

Say Cheese!
We begged and we pleaded for them all to say “cheese”
But only the eldest were aiming to please
So how many more years do you think it will take
Until all of the cousins cooperate?

Pride in family is pride in ordinary people who in our hearts and minds become extraordinary.

If you can’t get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make him dance.

The family is our refuge and springboard…our link to the past, our bridge to the future.

Family faces are mirrors.
Looking at the people who belong to us,
we see the past, present and future.

A family is a place of warmth when the world is cold;
a place of safety when the world is hostile;
a place of light when the world is dark.

A family is a cheering section when a victory is won . . .
a family is a place for beginning again when a cause is lost.

All of us are we . . . and everyone else is they

A house is built by human hands – But a home is built by human hearts.

A family is a clan held together with the glue of love and the cement of mutual respect.

Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us,
we see the past, present and future.
-Gail Lumet Buckly

A family is where character is formed,
values are learned,
ethics are created and
society is preserved.

A family is a haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace and most of all a harbor of love.

A house is made of walls and beams, but a home is built with hopes and dreams.

The love in our family flows strong and deep,
leaving us memories to treasure and keep

Like branches on a tree, we may grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one

Within our hearts,
The ones we love
Are never really gone.
In spirit and in memory
Their legacy lives on.
