A True Priceless Gift


A true priceless gift
My family
Together we form an indestructible bond
Together we create a feeling
That is the most amazing connection
A love that is unconditional
Loyalty and support which without a question or doubt
We give to each other

In life we do not get to choose who our families are
But I know if it could
I would pick each one by choice every time
These unique individuals each one my lifetime friend

Our mother a beautiful cherished woman
The gift of our family you created
The importance and the true meaning of this
You gave to us.

Each time I look around at these truly special people
It is obvious we all hold a small piece
Of each other within ourselves
This is why we all feel and experience one another’s
Highs and lows as if they are our own.

Families are like the most precious jewel
That we are so lucky to have
Never lose sight of this gift
Never take it for granted
Always keep it safe and close to your heart
Cherish it.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
