There may not be a forever family
Well not in the present
But in the future and the past
There are figures you can learn from
My dear gran such a strong and intelligent woman
At the age of 89 finally getting her ears pierced
You're never too old.
My dear mother such a strong and resilient woman
At the age of 62 helping her mother come to terms with her partners dementia
You're stronger than you know.
My dear brother young and driven
Moving with his wife to pastures new for the next step on the ladder
Don't be afraid to live your life.
Inspiration can be taken from those you hold close
They may not be there forever but the lessons they teach can last a lifetime
You're never too old, you're stronger than you know and don't be afraid to live your life.
