Family A Family starts with two people, than they make three. Just like the Sacred Family, Joseph, Mary and Jesus.Sometimes a family becomes bigger than three and they become a large family. It is beautiful when a family stays together and we get to see our children grow up and later have children of their own. We then give thanks to God and say my job is done. This is a beautiful picture to look at, but we all know that it's not always like that. Sometimes a family breaks up and disintegrates. Sometimes - the parents don't care and one or the other leaves. other times it's the kids that go wrong. What are we to do, when the family dream we had didn't come true? Tell me - what do we do? 07/06/2013 Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo

    That's Karma, Lucillo, we can do nothing about it !!

    This is tough to answer realistically. The only thing, I imagine, we could do is believe that, somehow, it can get better one day...believe in the stars and continue to say a prayer for better days. Huge respect for this thought provoking piece.

    It's a sad state of affairs when families disintegrate and too common these days . Good theme, Lucilla. I liked the mention of Jesus' little family. Some say that he had other brothers and sisters born after him!

    Wonderful question you have asked in the last line. I think if any member does or goes to do wrong, then all other members should try to convince him that what he intends, that is wrong. Here, love is only the absolute solution between or among family members. Here elders bear much more duty and responsibility. Each and ever members are like pillar of that family House. Thanks for sharing, Loved always, bl

    I really enjoyed reading your amazing write my friend! To answer your pressing question is that you need to trust in God for he knows when He is doing, that life goes In His direction in His way! I know that some times it looks depressing and bad, but within His scheme of things there is some shining light, something Good will happen! I really loved your approach that you used for this illuminating poem here Lucilla! What a brilliant piece, Great Work!!

    Hi, my dear friend, Lucy! Hope you're doing better now. Your poem portraits the truth about family & the last part is a heartfelt write which describes unhappy end of it sometimes to most/few. I have no family yet of my own. I live alone but I look back to my family of origin to extricate loneliness. ;) My mom might feel the same way in my absence if my brother & his family don't stay w/ her. Thank u so much for this amazing write & your kind visit! A blessed wkend! love & big hugs Leonora
