We all have family. We may not keep in touch as much as we wish, or we may see them everyday. Our lives are shaped by who we live with and grow up with. By many accounts our personalities are shaped by the age of five. Most of us only know family during the first five years of life. Our mother, father and any siblings are who we learn from during these truly formative years.
Then we get to school and learn the other stuff. How to play with others, how to spell (I didn’t), math, science, history, all those wonderful lessons. When we come home from school it is our family that helps bring it all together.
In hard times we learn who our true friends are. Regardless, your family is there.
