To look back
At the good
Times and the bad
To remember
How I was
Brought up
And what I had
There were three
Other siblings,
A dog and other pets
But really...
I have no regrets-
Choosing to remember
The good times, the laughter
Yes, another dysfunctional
Family in the rafters
Of time

I don't think there's a family on the planet that doesn't have some form of dysfunction...we were nine....and we put the "fun" in dysfunction...giggle....enjoyed this, Deborah...especially the ending...awesome!

You are very blessed IMHO to have grown up with your family
& all the memories too. I was orphaned
from mine via death & disasters...but I am going to
visit my sister I have not laid eyes on
since 1990!! I am sooooo excited!!

In All "Good Times and Bad"
making each families bond(s) in love very special

Choosing the good times is what we all need to aim for.

Don't know anyone who had a perfect life Deborah, but we have all learned though it all.

Unfortunately media and Telly portrayed a life like Father Knows Best back during our time and chose to hide under the rug reality. I personally feel that left many feeling shorted in life to the reality of relationships and family life.

Their view was to create happy situations in a view of a family, but instead created more depression for most. The new era (1980's forward) they finally became braver and started showing realism as opposed to fantasy.

But hey! We made it through now didn't we :)

Great write!
