There was once a time family and getting together were the order of the week, now not so much. I speak with many friends and they tell the same story, a story about how family doesn’t talk as much as it did in the past. I have no idea if this is just a Scottish thing or a global thing or just parts of the world.
But here in Scotland, the “Family” has gone. We all still speak on social network etc, but visiting and being together with Aunt’s, cousins etc seems to have gone. I remember as a kid the entire family, every Saturday would go to Grandma’s and stay for the day, brilliant memories for me
But speaking to some family lately also, it seems this has gone. I don’t know if it is because all my four grandparents have left us, but we only see each other at wedding or funerals
Is this something people from other parts of the world can associate with and understand? I would be interested to know. Maybe it is just growing up? Getting old? In my house I have two older sons and when they are both here with their partners it is brilliant, I love it. My sons still live at home, but I am a family man, I love all my family and miss just being with them deeply
It may just be me and my circle of friends. It would be interesting to know if anyone feels and sees this. Don’t get me wrong, when REALLY needed family are there, but getting together once a week, a fortnight, has gone, and I only blog this after speaking about it with a few friends and family members
Maybe I miss childhood and Grandma’s home cooking? My father lives 300 miles away, so for me, family togetherness has gone, and again I did this after speaking to family and friends.
The song below, I love, as it is about never ending love and missing things. I hope people can understand this blog and what I mean, I have my own home, and my own family now, and I love this, but I miss these times. That is all
