Family is family, no matter what you are going through. We all need family no matter how much we believe that not to be the case. Family is about blood and blood is as they say, thicker than water. Family is about loving even in times of disagreement and discontent. It’s about caring even when it’s last on your want to do list. Family is not just about birth relations, it’s about much, much more. Family is a feeling, a comfort level, a wanting to be a part of and wanting to be with. Family is more than just about money, grades, stuff, feelings, jealousies and missed trusts. Family is never perfect, none ever are. It’s about forgiveness, helping, needing, growing up, learning, sharing, making mistakes and saying “I’m sorry” and “I love you”. Family is about life. Life has its ups and downs; family has its ups and downs. Family is about accepting, no matter what. It’s about reunions and shared experiences and stories that last through generations. Nothing perfect, that’s what family is. US and WE!
“Families are like fudge – mostly sweet with a few nuts.” Unknown
“The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.”
“To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.” Barbara Bush
“In time of test, family is best.”
