THE STORY OF "FAMILY BONDS"
When the going gets tough, we turn to the ones we love and trust the most in our lives. That’s what I immediately thought of when I had the good fortune of witnessing this family of bison brave a thick, early-season Colorado snowstorm.
I had watched the herd for quite a while. At first, these magnificent animals were all dispersed, each minding their own grazing business. But then, something beautiful happened. As the snow started falling ever more violently, individual family members within the herd started to gravitate toward each other. This family moved in really close and tight, to shield each other as much as possible, and to gift warmth where there was cold. It was moving, to say the least, and a story of a shared overcoming by getting closer to and with the ones we love the most, a show of the powerful bonds and strength of family.
What I mean to say by that? Hug your loved ones tight tonight.
