    tangled roots of time
    families that weave their stress
    such blends giving hope

    __Often… such hearts weave, secures their baskets

    Some wrongdoings, no matter how seemingly insignificant or how much time has passed, will rise to the surface and ”trip us.” A well observed truth, Valorie.
