Family – A Poem

I’m in Texas this week visiting family that I haven’t seen in 35 years, and some that I’ve never met before. So for Thankful Thursday I decided to write a poem about family and how thankful I am for them.


Family is always there
Although we may not see them
Miles separate us but
In our hearts we are connected
ove will forever bind us
esterday falls away as we meet again

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. That is a beautiful, simple poem. My family is 5 hours away and I wish I could spend more time with my nieces and nephews.


    • Thank you. I actually have a bunch of family who live 4 hours away coming to visit this weekend and am so excited! It’s not that far, but still we don’t see them as much as I’d like. Peace, Linda


  2. The closest of my sons is a 5 hour drive away, another is a 16 hour drive, while one would be a six DAY drive or an all day flight. My eldest now lives in New York but lived in London for 12 years. Another lived in England for 6 years.
    Distance separates but as you say, “in our hearts we are connected”


    • Angela, For both my husband and I, our closest family is at least 3 hours away. But when we see them it’s like time just melts away. It was that way with my aunt this week, and I haven’t seen her in 35 years. Peace, Linda

    Thanks, Linda 🙂

    Sounds like you’re having a blast! 🙂

    “…Love will forever bind us…”
    I like the simple beauty of this poem but the line above makes me tingly. 🙂 Very warm … reminds me of Christmas.
