What does being a family mean to you?

    It means discussions lead nowhere, yet warm the heart anyway.

    Oh good question. Families have many struggles and different views and opinions which can lead to conflicts. I will say my family growing up was disfunctional and my family with my husband and kids is disfunctional. But on the bright side of it all we all keep in contact no matter where we are. We do family events (bonfires, bar-b-ques, fishing, hunting) that keep us together. There has been times when siblings are not getting along but if there was ever a serious problem with a sibling all differences are put aside to help each other out thru tough times. We pull together because we are family and blood is thicker than water. And we make the best out of anything we can and we make good memories (even the bad ones). Family is a true richness.

    That is a loaded question for sure. My family keeps me on my toes. I never have to worry about watching a soap...a phone call works just the same. There is never a dull moment with some of my family members. It gives me plenty of ideas to write about. To me, my family is my whole world.

        It means a place where we seek to love one another in the way the other feels loved, accept one another for who they are, and grow together knowing we will always have opportunity to learn something new.
