Family Friday- Family is like an orange
I came across a quote today that I liked. It is from Letty Cottin Pogrebin, a journalist and the founding editor of Ms. magazine. She said, "If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable - each segment distinct." What better way to describe what a family is? Adding to her analogy: sometimes they are sweet, other times, not so much; some are full of juice (or drama) and others are less "juicy"; and oranges, like families, come in lots of sizes, from small to huge. Can you think of any other ways families are like oranges, or any other fruit?
