Family isn’t always about your blood relations. There are people who you come in contact with and then they stay with you; right beside you or in boundless physical distance. Who you know you can always count on in times that you are down and in need of support.
Without asking why and knocking you off with disheartening words, they readily come to your side or listen to you talk of your woes over the phone. Without saying judgmental comments in between, but listening to you silently, an unshakable tower of quiet strength you know you can always count on.
However, even how happy or successful those friends we consider family are in their chosen careers and with their relationships. There will always times that they too are going to need us to lend them a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes we respond instinctively without questions and judgments too because the fellow feeling between us comes naturally and not compulsory. We do for them willingly, what they’d do for us freely.
I know family comes first, but shouldn’t that mean after breakfast?
Family life is a bit like a runny peach pie – not perfect but who’s complaining?
The family – that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.
That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.
I realized my family was funny, because nobody ever wanted to leave our house.
Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.
-Gail Lumet Buckley
Family is a blessing. – Just keep saying that when you are irritated by something a family member says.
I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he’s rich.
-Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford
If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable – each segment distinct.
-Letty Cottin Pogrebin
One day you will do things for me that you hate. That is what it means to be family.
-Jonathan Safran Foer
