Family life -

I am coming to see that a marriage is a bringing together of the disparate, and that is a good thing.   We gain a daughter and a son, as individuals, and a unit, that will, most likely expand, as they, begin,  to create and make their own way.  I like these words of May Sarton's, as they allow me to find some humor and space in the wholeness of this marriage scene.

Of course, I also note, that the nations of the world make up a dysfunctional family unlike one I would like to ever participate in, and yet, here we all are, "one happy family," in the throes of birth and death.   

“Family life! The United Nations is child's play compared to the tugs and splits and need to understand and forgive in any family.”

-- May Sarton
