B is for Branches
Branches catch balls!
|This is what happened when someone threw the ball for the dog!|
Branches are resting and nesting places for birds.

Family trees have many branches.
|My grandmother Eduth Lavada Boyd|
Eduth Lavada Boyd had never been married. My grandfather had been married, but his first wife died tragically, taking her own life, and left my grandfather with eight children, the youngest being slightly over a year old. A little over a year after the death of his first wife, my grandfather married 28 year old, Eduth Lavada Boyd, or Vada as she was known. Vada and my grandfather, Joseph Leander Kimes had seven children, bringing the total number of children in the family to 15.
Some branches of families break away because of strong hurtful words or actions of others in the family and don't speak for years, and hesitate to be the first to say, "Let's make bygones be bygones, okay?"
Branches of families can be sheltering and loving places for others in the family, and the world will be a better place for it. Peace in the world begins with peace within the home.
