"My mother used to tell me, 'Billy, family is not just an important thing in your life, it is everything' and she was right. Wherever I went as an adult after I left home, I always found the need to return home everytime I needed to feel grounded again.
I know that the family bond is forged in blood and this blood tie links us, but be not mistaken, for it is the respect of one another and the joy you find in each other's presence that forever binds you. Like the Three Musketeers, family means 'all for one and one for all.' In this unit of relationships, nobody gets left behind or is forgotten, be they alive or dead.'
Every parent knows that for their family to thrive, the love must go around it from one person to another. Every parent knows that children hold the keys to paradise and that a happy family is but an earlier experience of heaven here on earth.
So rejoice in the family you have been born into and keep them forever close to you for they are merely you in different shape and form." William Forde: April 2nd, 2015.
