We ended the week with a walk down the street. It was so peaceful and relaxing. A lot of energy was flying this week, more than I realized duringbut recapping, I didn't even talk about Jonas' baptism or Grandma's Silver Beaver award. Both very important and wonderful things. Good thing we have memories.
The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due, I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people - no mere father and mother - as I have often said, are enough to provide emotional security for a child. He needs to feel himself one in a world of kinfolk, persons of variety in age and temperament, and yet allied to himself by an indissoluble bond which he cannot break if he could, for nature has welded him into it before he was born. ~Pearl S. Buck
Oh, Thank you, for family.
