    a positive family creates an environment
    that mothers and fathers and kids can be down wit'
    "I love you" smiles that speak from the heart
    and actions to back them {right from the start}

    a positive family creates an environment
    of wholesome respect for all who are in it
    extended family...they're in the mix, too
    props to the parents whose examples are true

    a positive family creates an environment
    of security and love whenever you find it
    playing together...always with a smile
    disciplining with compassion...every once in a while

    a positive family creates an environment
    of love growing strong but never spent
    one supporting the other...always sticking together
    having each other's back through any endeavor

    a positive family
    you know what they say
    praying
    playing
    in their hearts
    everyday

    a positive family.

    this and that...

    for every positive this...
    there is a negative that...
    and the vice-versa...
    family...

    many of us stepping out
    of the boundaries that defines
    people, with respect to family...
    in the biological sense, that is...

    for...they, the biological...
    will let you down
    disgracing the term...
    the feeling of...
    family...

    i have a family
    trusting...
    loving and loyal...
    they are not...biological
    but spiritual...
    one in which fulfills the
    positive and crushes...
    the negative...

    great piece...baller~

    thanks peeps...

    it's amazing the number of dysfunctional families who want nothing to do with one another. i wanted to say that my southern roots wouldn't allow me to think that way...but these are southerners that i speak of.

    i think a healthy, loving, positive family is a beautiful thing to see. sure, you have differences...however, you don't let the differences overshadow the love you have for FAMILY.

    THANKS for reading me.

    Baller....

    I totally agree, with all the dysfunction in
    families today, makes you wonder what
    state this world will be in in 5 years...
    we have to get back to the basics...

    ....God
    ....love
    .....respect

    maybe...

    if every FAMILY came to the playground to see how this FAMILY showed their LOVE, they would all catch on to what's REAL.:)

    let the river flow.
