Family means a great deal to me and holds a special place in my heart that is irreplaceable. I am one to believe that your family is always there for you, and a distinct bond between each member is created that will last a lifetime.
I’m immensely passionate about family time and being with those I share blood with. The joys that come with being surrounded by these people 24/7 are indescribable. It’s like having a place where I can just be myself and feel comfortable and confident with everything I do.
Nowadays, it seems very hard for families to all be in the same place together, including my own, but I always try to connect with mine as much as I can. Whether it be eating dinner together or just asking each other about our day, I try to incorporate my family into my life every single day because I know it will benefit me in some manner—and it’s just nice to have their company.
But I don’t consider the people I share my blood with to be my ONLY family. Many individuals have encouraged and influenced my life in remarkable ways who I also consider to be my family. They hold that same place in my heart as my biological family and deserve just as much from me.
Each person in my family has shaped me into the person I am today, and I could not be more grateful to have the opportunity to spend time with them on a daily basis.
