Families come in all different shapes, sizes, and connections. Whether it is your family of origin or your chosen family of friends, there are people to whom you know you are connected, no matter what. These are the people who laugh at your jokes, share your sorrows, encourage your dreams, and treasure your love. They are there when you need them without guilt or control. They accept you for who you are and allow you to grow into your greater-yet-to-be.
How wonderful to have others in your life who are family for you. What a gift to be family for someone else.
