|Nobody has ever before asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do. With no relatives, no support, we've put it in an impossible situation.------Margaret Mead|
This quote is so true. It used to be that the grandparents were only a little run down the road or across the field. Your Aunts, Uncles and cousins were just a hop or skip away. Not today. Our closest family member is 20 minutes from our house. But most are at least 30 minutes to an hour away. I sure do miss having family around..... someone to count on... someone to visit with.... when life gets boring you run over and see what your family is doing....People don't stay in the same town like they used to. Families need support that they are not getting. These are just thoughts, that do not have answers. At least I don't have any answers.... Do you? Your thoughts on this please.?.
