Every family needs a 'rocket'

The other night, we watched Astronaut Farmer.

My favorite line:
"You are a good father. I couldn't even get my family to eat together. But you, you've got your family dreaming together. That's big stuff." ~Farmer's father in law

My hubby's favorite line was:
"Without the rocket, we are just a dysfunctional family." ~Farmer's wife

What we love about those lines is the reminder that when you have a dream or something to strive after together it makes you a closer family.

Our 'rocket' is a family worship band. And it is definitely taking awhile to get off the ground...
Thankfully, it isn't as expensive or as dangerous as say, launching into outer space. ; ) whew!
Does your family have a 'rocket?' I'd love to hear about it.

I don't think we have a 'rocke' per se. I do think our whole family has a heart for certain causes. H*abitat for Hum*nity and such are dear to us. And we all look for ways to help those that are less fortunate than we are.

Frequently these topics are discussed around our dinner table, and schedules are adjusted to acoomodate the volunteering that goes on.

Maybe that counts.

I love the idea and I have not seen that movie. I should rent it.

'rocket' per se. That's what my fingers meant to type.
