F: Family

A2Z-BADGE [2016]


Families – one of the most wondrous things in the world. And sometimes…not as much. As beloved as families are, they are still sometimes filled with strife and drama. And then, there are the days they are the most important thing in your life. Here are a few thoughts on families, just one of the things we have to embrace about life.

“A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.” Buddha

“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones you accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.”

“Unconditional love is loving your kids for who they are, not for what they do… it isn’t something you will achieve every minute of every day. But it is the thought we must hold in our hearts every day.” Stephanie Marston

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.” Frederick Buechner

“When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching — they are your family.” Jim Butcher

“Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related for better or for worse…and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum.” Rick Riordan

“Sometimes the best families are the ones God builds using unexpected pieces of our hearts.” Melanie Shankle

“The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege.” Charles Kuralt

    Really love that quote. I could throttle some members of my family but I know they’d always be there for me and vice versa!
