Thoughts on struggle and peaceful garden photos

To me the hardest thing is to watch a loved one go through trying times and to not be able to help them. My brother is dealing with some heavy stuff right now. He had a child with a girlfriend and they have just come to terms with the idea that they can't be together as a couple. His daughter and now ex-girlfriend just left his house to be on their own.

On my mom's side I have an aunt, grandmother, grandfather and two uncles that are discussed and who make an appearance every now and then. On my real fathers side I knew of a grandmother, grandfather and two uncles but haven't seen or heard from them since I was very young. I think that knowing about your family is important. Different situations and circumstances may not allow you to be close to...
