“To the loyal and to the blood-lovers, in the good families and in the fiery dynasties, life is family and family is life. It is the same people who give advice and their vices to live well who turn out to be the ones who give resource and reason to live long.”
—Criss Jami, Healology
I am grateful for family.
For cousins who call on FaceTime to be present for sentinel events such as a Yahrzeit. To share in sorrow and joy.
Who check in when they are thinking of me.
Who have grown closer by sharing the load of settling an estate of a beloved Aunt.
For my sister who supports me and loves me, even though she knew me as a teenager.
For my sister-in-law who is my sister and calls me because she feels she needs to- and always just at the right time.
For my children- blood and bonus. Children-in-laws-(bonus love)! Whom I love dearly.
For my grandchildren who are the lights of my life.
For my chosen family.
For all my family, past, present, and future, without whom my life would not be as sweet.
I love you all ❤️
“When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching — they are your family.”
