The older I get, the more I realize how important family is, so what better way to show how important they are to you than to send them sweet little sayings and cute family quotes when they’re least expectin it?
Family means something different to everyone, but for me family means stronger together than apart. This is a group of people, not always related by blood, who realize that there is strength in numbers and stick together no matter what.
It is the never-ending fight to stay connected that makes family so beautiful. This special group of people are the ones you can count on in both the good times and the bad.
During the moments I need them most, the members of my family have always come together to make me feel better. Whether it be through text, phone call, or in person, their love for me is always felt. Whenever I want to quit, they encourage me to keep pushing. They make me want to be the best version of myself. I am constantly reminded of how thankful I am to have them in my life. They make life easier.
Anyone who has ever lived knows just how tough life can be, so having people who can make days brighter is truly a blessing. We often overlook this blessing when family members don’t get along and constantly fight with one another. It can be easy to point out all the things wrong with a family instead of focusing on all the good that comes from having a group of people who you can be forever linked to.
So instead of questioning why someone is in your family or wishing you were a part of someone else’s, focus your energy on accepting your family for who they are.
We don’t get to choose who is in our family, but we do get to choose to love and cherish them forever.
