I am from a home of nine.
with 3 older sisters and 3 older brothers.
Sundays were ice cream sodas and The Wonderful World of Disney.
A place where my mom was often “sick”.
A time when my dad commuted to DC every week.
I am from a home where my sisters married and I was left with 3 brothers.
I am from a home that went to church weekly.
I moved 5 times before I graduated from high school.
I am now from sitting around the table
with 3 siblings who gather for Thanksgiving.
Sisters and brothers have grandchildren.
I am now from siblings moving closer to their children farther from me.
Life is changing.
In time I will likely be doing the same.
