Gary Glauber Holiday Apothegms Fate follows into eternity. Once upon mother and father ill-suited, next thing an awkward family’s dysfunction follows. It’s hardly unique. Laying blame is a lesson in futility. Many know such strife; imperfection as way of life. Yet often they will question why normalcy has passed them by. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s family. Always the inevitable comparison with families who seem happier, better adjusted, well-suited to life’s sundry challenges. Thou shalt honor thy other and thy rather. This leads to confusion first, then anger at perceived disrespect or choices made and motives questioned. It is a Gordian knot. Try to make do in spite of graven imaginings.
