Today’s “The Daily Prompt” brought up a thought provoking question.
Many countries celebrate Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be — and why
There have been many answers; brothers/sister, Aunt/Uncle, cousin. My first thought came to a close member of the family. At times (s)he isn't thought of as a relative, but none the less a real member of the family.
Yes the family pet. As a constant companion it is always there, sometimes more loving than the ‘people’ of the family. They are always there, even in your saddest moments, they are at your side to bolster your spirit. They deserve their own day, actually many days.
