Tuesday's Treasures ~ Family: Love, Support, and Celebrations

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I know what family is. It’s laughing, It’s learning, It’s being “real” and being friends. And it will always be there, no matter what.

My children (John and Melissa) organized a fantastic birthday dinner at the new Truluck's in downtown Austin. It was an evening filled with fun, laughter, great food, and wonderful company. What more could anyone ask for?

     

In times of triumph, our families are our biggest cheerleaders, celebrating our victories with unbridled joy. These moments of shared happiness strengthen the familial bond, making celebrations all the more meaningful. The essence of family lies in the profound connections that bind us together, creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime (some of the best pictures are the bloopers).

 

"Family is not an important thing. It's everything." - Michael J. Fox

"In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past, a bridge to our future." - Alex Haley

"Families are like branches on a tree, we grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one." – Unknown

"I sustain myself with the love of family." - Maya Angelou

Hello Dorie - your family tree continues to grow abundantly. Its limbs are meant for climbing in different directions.    The branches continue become fuller and extend to new lengths. 

While today is the beginning of a new month, there's no reason why the celebrating needs to end.  I have a feeling that's part of the history in your family.

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful family, Dorie! I love all the smiles. You are right, the best pictures are the bloopers, making us laugh time and time again. 

I just returned from a visit with my family. We make every moment count, but not being close enough to celebrate every birthday together or to stop by just because is such a tough thing to navigate as an expat. Thank goodness for technology! That helps to bridge the distance.
