How do I CHOSE my family? That’s easy! At times when relatives were too far away to physically “be there” for m,e I paid attention to who IS “there for me” and who I would be willing to “be there for” through life’s ups and downs, thick and thin. Those are the people I include in my family.
Family, to me are people who love me for me without requirements and without drama. I even include my CHOSEN family WITH my related family when I plan events. My CHOSEN family are just that close to me. I’m Thankful for my CHOSEN family.
