Family Likeness

July 10, 2022


When my oldest granddaughter was four-years-old, she made a bold pronouncement: “I’m a strong, independent woman.” That drew some chuckles, recognizing where that came from: she picked it up from her feminist mother.

Often, in observing the conduct of children, we’re inclined to say: Doesn’t she just remind you of her mother/father. Or, You can tell where he comes from. Or, You don’t have to guess who his parents are. There is a recognizable family likeness.
