Family provides STRUCTURE! Sometimes that structure comes under pressure as we grow, change and move through life’s different stages. Sometimes we rub each other up the wrong way and step over pre-defined boundaries. But when the family unit works properly, when we learn to voice our needs but also really listen to the needs of our family members then the structure is at its soundest! This photo is of the homemade jam and fresh cream sponge cake my brother John, my brother in law Liam and myself shared with members of our family structure after last Sunday’s lunch. We are a combined 140 years young!!
