  1. Hi Walt. I’ve been able to read the last several of your postings. I like the summary and definition that you provide. They are such a great challenge to “keep at it” regardless of the past family failures and successes.


  2. Thank you Walt for sharing your heart for people and families in this blog. Great stuff here for me and my family as well. I do grieve of my own past struggles with building a close family.


    1. Hi Norman, I’m just getting the hang of relying to comments. I would like you to consider being a guest blogger on my blog at some time in the future. We all struggle with family wounds and it could be healing for you and helpful for those who read you insights. Let me know what you think.
