What is the definition of family?  There are the people you live with on a daily basis.  Your spouse and children.  There are your parents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  But what about your tribe?  Your friends?  Your soul sisters? The people who get you.  The people who cheer for you on the sidelines.   The people who walk in when the world walks out.  Family is tied together by far more than blood.

If someone reminds you that you are more than enough, they are family.  If they ask about your dreams, they are family.  If they tell you that the world needs to hear your story, they are family.  If they pick you up when you fall, they are family.

As author Regina Brett once said, “We all have a personal pool of quicksand inside us where we begin to sink and need friends and family to find us and remind us of all the good that has been and will be.”

We love and cherish all parts of our family.  And on Family Day, we take a moment to celebrate our connections with those who make us feel like we matter.
