It had been nearly five years since the entire family had been together. Jessica had been living in New York working as a lawyer, and barely had time for a phone call, let alone a visit. Her younger brother, David, had joined the military and was stationed in Germany. And their parents had retired to Florida, enjoying the warm weather and relaxed lifestyle.

But now, they were all back in their hometown for a long overdue family reunion.

As they sat around the dinner table, reminiscing about old times and catching up on each other’s lives, Jessica felt a wave of warmth and love wash over her. She realized how much she had missed her family and how grateful she was to have them in her life.

Even though they were all older now, with their own families and careers, they still felt like the same close-knit group they had always been.

As they said their goodbyes and hugged each other tightly, Jessica made a promise to herself to never let so much time pass without seeing her family again. She knew that the love and support they provided was irreplaceable and she didn’t want to miss out on any more memories with them.

The next family reunion was already in the works and Jessica couldn’t wait to see everyone again. She knew that no matter how much time passed or how far apart they were, their bond as a family would never fade.

Welcome to Voice.Club, Prosper. Loved your sentence about families, “She knew that the love and support they provided was irreplaceable and she didn’t want to miss out on any more memories with them.” I think as busy families with our own agenda, bills to pay and life’s problems, we must not forget this.

A warm welcome to voice club, Prosper. Truly. A family ties will never be faded and broken. No matter how much time passed and how far apart to each other. Your story makes me smile with a little teary eyes. Well done. I am looking forward to reading more stories from you.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
