Family is not only who you share DNA with, but also who you choose. Unfortunately there are times when its revealed that the family we are born with actually doesn't really exhibit what it means to be family. It's quite sad when you think about it.
Today was an emotionally tough day. Even more so because I thought about the pain inflicted on the hearts of some of my family members by other family members. As tough as my day was, it pales in comparison to the days some of my family members have had to go through. That compounded with the ignorant rhetoric spewed by others had to only make it worse. I know I'm rambling.....
I guess my point is to say that family is what you make of it and who you choose to make it with. I'm so incredibly grateful for the members of my family near and far close and distant, blood or not. Take a moment to sit in silence and thank your creator for those that have been placed in your life. Because life is short and the only true way to give meaning to it is to appreciate it and those in it.
Love Ya...and sorry for the rambling :-/
