When you are a child the word Family is so simple. You look around at your parents and siblings and you feel secure because you know that is your family. 

When you are a child the word Family is so simple. You look around at your parents and siblings and you feel secure because you know that is your family. 
You know they love you and you love them. 
You and your siblings have a fight and someone cries, you usually solve the issue fairly quickly because you would rather have your favorite play mate than not. 
The days of playing cops and robbers seems so simple. 
As we get older relationships change. We see flaws and have conflicts

We become stubborn and hard headed. We make mistakes and hurt people. We hope they will forgive us and that we can forgive them.
It’s difficult but you all try
Family isn’t as simple a term as it once was. Your circle expands and yet it closes in. 
The people who mean the most aren’t always blood. They are friends who turn into family. 
Your roots, though, are still there.
Family is now even more meaningful. The relationships take work because we get busy and consumed with our own children, jobs and lives but it’s worth it. 
They may make mistakes and disappoint us but if we can forgive them it will make that bond even stronger
Your child becomes a part of them. Their love for your child whether blood or not is incredible. This little person shows them the purest love and theirs to you. 
You can’t help but smile and think how incredibly blessed you really are. 
Family isn’t simple. It isn’t cookie cutter. It can be a roller coaster of a relationship. It brings out the strongest emotions in people. 
Life is short, spend it with those you love. Cherish your family.

This is dedicated to my Brother & Sister. I love you both so much! Without you I would be lost after losing Mom and Dad.
