Today's fortune: October 29, 2011

Today's fortune: A happy and harmonious family is important to you.

My family is not much different than everybody else's. We have our oddballs and outcasts, short family spats and long-running feuds, controversies and sorrows, but we also have lots of love and laughs - maybe more than most families.

I love my family dearly. We're not always happy, and we're not always harmonious, but but we always remember that we ARE family above all else.

Of course, we'll never be as harmonious as this family:

And we can only strive to be as happy as this family (made harmonious by Ray Charles):

But we try our damnedest. And we'll keep on trying. The new baby coming into our lives next year, courtesy of my brother Marty and his wife Sarah, will draw us even closer together, and it'll be even more important that we be happy and harmonious for the sake of the child.

I can't wait.
