So true about extended family and reunions. With age comes a realization of their important context.

Yep, we have different realisations as we age.Nice one.
Oh, yes ... one has only to look in the mirror... like it or not...
Oh, too funny!
So true. Our genes come home to roost at reunions.

Well expressed microfiction. So true in many ways.
There is much truth here, my friend. Plus, I adore this picture!
A lot said here, Suz, and it's all so very true! Great one for the day! Hope you have a lovely day! Enjoy!Sylvia
Isn't that the truth for many of us?! I love your take on this week's picture--so creative.
Oh, family. I never thought of them as one genetic pool with so many differences. Interesting angle.Kay, Alberta
As ususal, most interesting and thought provoking. How is your Mom and her arm?
Hi John...my mom is milking it for all she can! Tomorrow she has to go and see the hand doctor...thanks for asking about her.....she's a peachy one she is
I'm sure many of us can relate to your post--can't choose our gene-pool, but can choose to embrace it, with all its quirks!Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
As one who's spent part of the day researching family tree stuff...oh does that sing true! :)
You're right-we can't choose them. LOL!
i just giggle b/c i can relate. lol.
That's a wisdom that only comes the hard way -- I can relate too! What a wonderful Microfiction, Suz, thanks!
