Week 4: “Family”

Between my husband and I, we have lost four family members in the last three weeks, so this week’s theme is especially poignant for me…

Family to me is also tribe, the people in your life who have gone from being just friends to being a kind of extended family. Mine this past week has been instrumental in dealing with everything.

What does family mean to you and what are some of the ways that you support each other?

Holding space for each other and making each other important is what makes people family. Im not always perfect with it, sometimes I unintentionally allow life to derail me. This year I’m collecting birthdays in order to mail out cards via postal service, making sure to stay in touch, and trying to create more interaction vs just doing a fly-by when I’m busy.

Thank you for being here and for being part of my extended family. You matter to me. Looking forward to see what you come up with, remember to tag what you post with @renmeleon and #positivityplague
