  2. 2. BEGINNINGS… <ul><li>“ We all grow up with the weight of history on us.  Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies.”  </li></ul><ul><li>Shirley Abbot </li></ul>

  4. 8. “ To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.” Clara Ortega
  5. 10. “ Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister?” Alice Walker
  6. 13. “Sisters don't need words.  They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief.  Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling.”  Pam Brown
  7. 14. MARRIAGE… <ul><li>“What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.” </li></ul><ul><li>Nathaniel Hawthorne </li></ul>

  9. 16. “ The institution of marriage was begun that a man and a woman might learn how to love and, in loving, know joy; that a man and a woman might learn how to share pain and loneliness and, in sharing, know strength.” Kenneth W. Phifer
  10. 17. “ A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” Mignon Mcglauphin
  11. 19. “ May the gods grant you all things which your heart desires, and may they give you a husband and a home and gracious concord, for there is nothing greater and better than this - when a husband and wife keep a household in oneness of mind, a great woe to their enemies and joy to their friends, and in high renown.” Homer
  12. 20. CHILDREN… <ul><li>“ You can learn many things from children.  </li></ul><ul><li>How much patience you have, for instance.”   </li></ul><ul><li>Franklin P. Jones </li></ul>
  13. 21. “ When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” Sophia Loren
  14. 22. “ If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?”  Milton Berle
  15. 27. Most of all the other beautiful things in life
  16. 28. “ God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers.” Jewish Proverb
  17. 29. “ A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.”  Irish Proverb
  18. 32. <ul><li>And how could we forget … </li></ul>
  19. 33. GRANDCHILDREN… <ul><li>“ It's one of nature's ways that we often feel closer to distant generations than to the generation immediately preceding us.”  Igor Stravinsky </li></ul>
  20. 34. “ Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.”  Doug Larson
  21. 36. “ Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.  Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.”  Anonymous
  22. 37. May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. And rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
