Nine of us made up our family on Detroit's east side.
Two sets of twins kept my parents hopping.
There never was a dull day.
Our family was active.
Meaningful activity kept us going.
The Church celebrates family today at Mass.
We need family.
It is the foundation of society.
Family develops as members give, forgive and prays.
The new year gives us pause to ponder family and its role today.
May we never take family for granted.
