Family

Hmmm with all thats been happening I realize how much family means to a person...how much it means to me.
Now there are two types of family as far as I'm concerned.
One that you're born with...and the second that you choose for yourself.

The one that you're born with you automatically love. There's a bond of love with an attached sense of duty or responsibility that lasts your life. There's no denying that the love you feel for your birth family is real and very profound...but then there's the other family.

The family you choose. Men and women who come into your life...and who become a permanent fixture in it because you want them to be there. You feel that there's an inexplicable bond here. Why do two completely unrelated people begin to care so deeply about each other. And I'm not just talking about the woman you'll marry or the children you'll have. I'm talking about friends, men who become the brothers you wanted to have and women who become sisters (should you be that lucky) or well if not sisters then atleast individuals who become incredibly special.
If you find friends who you choose to call family...you are truly blessed...because believe me, nothing is better than the feeling you get when you can truly be yourself, truly be open, be just who you are...and still be loved by someone else.

I have such people in my life. And I thank whatever we choose to call God, everyday for giving me these people. A lot in my life...well a lot of my life to be precise...would not be the same without these people.
Here's hoping that everyone everywhere also gets the kind of friends I have.
It's nice to have...a family.
