Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Family is a powerful word...
Family means many things to many people…
Family is another word for foundation...
Your foundation often is your family...
Even a child knows who is family...

Parents teach family to their kids...
Parents have that job...
Some do it well...
Some miss the mark...
Some get help with Grandparents...
Aunts, Uncles and Cousins...

Children watch and learn...
They see how their family acts...
They see what members do...
Kids follow their lead...
Kids want to fit in...
Kids want to be loved and excepted...

Family gatherings are so important...
Important for the kids...
Important for the adults...
Sometime adults need reminding...
They see family members being kind...
They see family members helping...
Helping each other...
They see people caring and sharing...

It reminds the adults who they are...
Adults want to fit in and be excepted...
All ages want to fit in and be excepted...
It is just a human trait...

A pleasant afternoon with family does...
Does many things...
It rebuilds long held traits...
It reminds us who we are...
It bonds us to each other...
It makes the family stronger...
It helps each member keep fresh mortar...
Mortar in their foundation...
Yes, adults too need reminding sometimes...

Maybe that is one reason family reunions
are so important...
In 2019 so many families live far apart...
Gathering to see each other takes on
new importance...

Sometimes it takes years to locate members...
Members who have drifted away...
But it is always worth the effort to find...
Find your family...
Blood lines are important...
They can tell you a lot about you...

Go to the trouble to research your family...
You may find that you have many...
Many traits of family members...
Members you never met...
Members who were dead of old age long...
Long before you were born...

Do yourself a favor...
Go to family gatherings...
Pass on the love that was passed on to you...
Renew mortar to the foundations...
The foundations of the children...
The children who will carry...
That wonderful family to the future...

To love your family is to love yourself...
That too is powerful...

--More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net
