"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories." ~ George Eliot
Family: a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation: fellowship
As I get older and maybe just perhaps a little more mature, I have learned that at the end of the day, it is not about the size of your home, how much overtime money you earned that year, or where you vacationed to that summer. Life is about people and relationships. It's about connecting with others and forming loving relationships that sustain and nourish you. It's about cultivating family, regardless of what your definition for that may be. I know for me personally, that no matter where my life's journey takes me, I will always have a family at the Belchertown United Church of Christ that I am connected with both in my heart and through God. And once again, for that, I am quite grateful.
