"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are them." Desmond Tutu
People always say that you can't pick your family, and that is true. Your family is all the people in your life who you love and love you back. Even though you don't necessarily get to pick who your family is, you do get to decide who you allow in your life. So, if you’ve allowed people in your life, and they've allowed you in theirs, make sure to cherish the time you have together. Life gets busy and we get caught up in what we have going on, but don't forget the people who love you. Send them a text if you don't have time to talk on the phone. Spend time just being together. The people in your life are your greatest blessings. Make sure you appreciate them.
