i do a lot of talking most of the time…in person and here on my blog.
tonight…i’m asking a question. what do you think a family consists of? how does your family, culture or country perceive family?
i have to say, “i’m gob-smacked tonight.”
i could not conceive in my mind that there might be a difference in interpretation when one speaks of family. yet tonight i called my step son’s maternal uncle his family and i was corrected and told he wasn’t family. really?
in my family, we ARE all family…aunts, uncles, cuzzies, in-laws, as well as my immediate family.
how does family work in your life? is it different than mine?
is your immediate family all that you count as family?
can you help me out here?
Family is not just blood relatives. It can include any number of people. The two ingredients needed are love and relationship.
Thank you so much, Brenda. I totally agree.
