What does family mean to you? This is a question that I believe that we should all know they answer to yet it appears that we either do not of that many of us are confused as for most what many say and what many do are the opposite of one another.
We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies. ~ Shirley Abbott
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. ~ Erma Bombeck
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. ~ Desmond Tutu
What does family mean to you? Let's get to your truth.
Let's have a seat on the couch and talk it all out.
