Family

Sometimes I wonder what family truly means. I mean, I have my husband and my daughter. But I also consider my dogs to be family, my best friend to be family and even some of my other friends. But I feel like they are more my family than my actual family. It’s sad really. I feel closer and more secure to people who are not blood than those that are.

Growing up, I babysat my nieces and nephews quite often and saw my sisters pretty regularly until I got a little older and I was in middle and high school. Then it was like family disappeared. People think it’s crazy that I don’t talk to my family on a regular or weekly basis even. I don’t really know what’s going on in my sisters lives and I keep in touch with my mom through email. I don’t talk to my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc at all. 

To me, family is supposed to be there for each other through thick and thin. What are your thoughts??
