What Does Family Mean to Me?

To me, family is comprised of the people that want what is best for you. It doesn’t matter if they are related by blood, marriage, or simply lifelong friends. They are going to support you and help you be a better you. Sometimes that means they challenge your thinking and teach you better ways of approaching life. Sometimes it’s simply listening and being by your side. It’s about forgiving when someone messes up; looking past the character flaws and embracing the person for who they are. Being family and loving each other doesn’t mean things are going to be easy; it simply means that you walk out of the valleys and up the mountains together, taking turns carrying each other to lighten the burden when things get too hard.

I have a younger sister and two amazing parents. We moved a few times when I was young before settling in Alpharetta where my sister and I grew up. We were pretty lucky; we had parents that loved us, no financial worries that we knew about, and overall a very happy childhood. Our family now extends to our friends and new additions to the family which include my brother-in-law and sweet niece.
