Family vs. Friends

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I started out thinking I was going to do a short post about the value of friends. Priceless I must say. I have been fortunate to have had some wonderful friends.

Gradually as I picked pictures I also saw that family can be friends also. I know they are family but if you can be friends with family that is a real bonus. I know looking back and spending time playing monopoly, riding my bike with Mandy & Dave, sharing laughter, I was thinking of them as family and there was that bond, a permanent bond. I also realize now that my kids have grown up; my role as Dad has to evolve.  I can’t tell them what todo, or to listen and I have to listen, and be flexible also.

I like the evolution, and I love the bond.

    I saw the title of your piece and thought it nice. I clicked on the picture of Mandy and Tyler to get a closer look of the two ‘young lovers’. Then I lost a heart beat when I saw the picture at the winery and realized that my friend had the same concept of family that I hold dear. Thanks Dave!
