#109 - Family

The prompt this week is: Family. Love them or hate them, we all have them. Whether it's urban families, adopted families, work families, extended families, nuclear families, or blended families, no matter how you look at them, they are complicated. Make up a new family, talk about your own family, or create a family for one of your characters to flesh them out a little. What does the word family bring up for you?

Happy Scribbling!

Almost too generous a prompt! I decided to be frivolous.

It seems the more we struggle with our own children, the more I appreciate my parents and grandparents.

I agree with lilibeth...our children teach us to appreciate our parents more.
My take is on

Brilliant prompt. Family is so intricately woven into the fabric of who we are and where we're going to.

I'm talking about family, but there are plenty of links through my archives for those who miss reading my fiction.

And be sure to check out the contest I'm running, too -- only until Tuesday, so come on by and throw your name in.

I had to take down my first post. I was afraid it would offend one of my daughter in-laws if she should read it.

Double-dipping here . . . as this prompt also fits the bill for the next SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt.

Families can't live without them and sometimes can't even get along with them.
