sitting here in the quietness with the episodes of The Walton’s playing The feeling of warm and loving feelings of a Mothers arms wrapped around me .As a child I remember when my parents went out and my older siblings were out as well I was home being taken care of by my Grandparents who faithfully watched The Walton’s that played on the weekend nights and I was bored to tears because I was young .. I just did not understand the meaning of this show but I always loved the ending when the whole family would all be settled in their beds and they showed the the house in the darkness with one or two bedroom lights on and they would say goodnight to one another it felt so cozy and a warm feeling . I remember trying it with my family one night and it did not go over well..my sisters yelled at me to stop and just go to bed oh the simple days ..I still to this day laugh at that memory. With the world feeling like its falling apart all around us and how materialistic we have all become when back in the days The Walton”s show us that money was sparse but they had just enough for their needs if that but that family love. morals accounted for everything and that they where rich in more ways then anyone of us will ever be…I think we have lost sight of that that being rich is not just how much money we have but the love of our families and how we treat and respect others. So every now in then when I need a reminder with life’s trials I watch the Walton’s to put things back into perspective.
