Family :: The Creativity Project :: “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.” Mother Teresa

My family is my heart. 
 

If you only know one thing about me, know this: 
I love my family.



When we are together the voices get louder.
The hugs get longer.
The love grows.

We irritate, annoy, irk.
 Laugh, joke, kid.
 Talk, listen, leave.

These people are everything to me.
Absolutely everything.
I hope you have this too.
There is nothing like it in the world.

My parents did a great job raising us, 
because no matter where life takes us, 
we are always coming home. 

Next up in our circle is one of my very favorite photographers:
S. Badiyah Austin
Her work is outstanding.
I can't wait to see her take on our theme this month.
We would love for you to post a picture to our facebook wall any time during this month.
