Keams Family

The road home remains the same…

Family Values

June 22, 2009 By: admin Category: Family Stories

After years of observing and listening, I’ve finally determined what The Keams Family seems to value most in each other.  We all have a touch of wackiness and moments of delirium, but somehow most of us always find our footing.  The same traits we saw in our parents appear in us when the going gets tough and there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. 

Our parents were tenacious and had a strength of purpose in how they lived and how they approached difficulties.  They were not always successful, but it did not take away from their gutsiness or resolve to better their lives.  We all remember our parents differently because we all spent time with them at different times of their lives.  

We have moments and times in our lives where we feel alone and unsure, but we do our best to remember who we are and where we came from and that helps us get past the troubled times.  Our family members are known to be a stubborn, willful, proud, funny and resourceful lot.  Of course, we try to include the teachings of our parents and infuse some degree of logic, study and planning into our actions, but it would be fair to say that we don’t do it a hundred percent of the time.  Sometimes, we fly by the seat of our pants with our fingers crossed and hope in our hearts.
