"Family" isn't defined only by last names or blood. It's defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other's backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other! ~ Dave Willis #quote

Exactly the definition of family in my eyes. One person in my family is actually blood but that doesn't make me love the rest of them any less

the ones who manage to stick around are something special.

It's true, but don't be delusional.. Just because you consider someone family, does not mean they feel the same way.

I've learned that much of my real family isn't blood, but those who choose to live for Christ along side us, as we help one another through life's struggles. love them all so much!

Yep, even after all the bad things you've gossiped about me and my family, you ignored my son and walked right past him in a restaurant and didn't speak while your husband did. You blocked both my kids on FB like a teenager, even tho they've done nothing to you and you've involved your children in this mess. You intentionally excluded me from the funerals of women  I physically helped care fop many years. But I'm the mean one?

three simple phrases that sum up a relationship gone bad. friends, family, boyfriends, never sacrifice yourself and your metal health for someone else's well being

Don't continue engaging or attempting to keep the peace at the expense of your inner peace.

Don't continue engaging or attempting to keep the peace at the expense of your inner peace. Had to learn this with my family and I love how it had changed things.

Rest in peace dad...you are forever loved by Ruth :) xoxo

What we'd give if we could say "hello Dad", in the same old way to. Hear your voice, see your smile, to just sit with you & chat awhile. So you who have your Father; Cherish him with care for you'll never know the heartache till you see his vacant chair.

Very difficult when you have numerous narcissists in the family; leads me to believe this personality disorder is genetic..

Never regret being a good person

Very difficult when you have numerous narcissists in the family; leads me to believe this personality disorder is genetic.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep." I want this on my body someplace. It's the most beautiful poem I've read.
