Even close family ties have their tangles. Maybe the closer you are, the more potential you have for misunderstandings, unmet expectations and broken hearts.
"...isn’t family life a bit of a three-legged race?" notes Ann at Holy Experience, "Days tie us together, and schedules trip us up, and everything snarls. We stumble and fall and it hurts."
Her advice for both family life and three-legged races is the same: “It’ll get better if you get closer.”
I think there's something to that.
