The word "commitment " means "to do "and" have a bond". Over the past few weeks , I have observed family members "doing" and "having strong bonds". One of my friends has cancer, and what "gets her through" is her commitment to the her family and our community. Carol has strong family bonds which she started over 60 years ago. Her family is there for her now. Another "grandpa" is doing for his wife of 54 years, maybe because she started the strong family commitment and when she falls down, he is the husband that picks her up. In life , we may fall or fall to illness , but if we start "doing " for our family , friends and community , they will carry on this commitment of "doing " and we will have a "bond" to carry on. We are not alone and we have someone "to pick" us up. I was observing my second cousins from Minnesota who came to my university for a conference on marriage, I can see that it wasn't just this weekend that they were "doing" for their family and for each other, but there was a "doing" for over 40 years. In observing all of these people who are "doing" and have a "stong bond" for each other, it is truly amazing that they have "true commitment" to each other,their family. their friends and their community.
