Perhaps one of the greatest full-circles of my life is introducing my offspring to our intertwined family. Particularly my grandparents, the patriarchs and matriarchs of the clan that has made so much of me...well, me.
Isn't the circle of life beautiful? Marked by pain and disappointment, but also joy and triumph. So beautiful. And I get to see a brief picture of it in my mother's kitchen shelling peas.
