Family is, as family does.
Family loves one another
More than money
More than time
More than comfort
More than smart words in greeting cards with brown-eyed puppies.
I have found the truest of family
Like a flower finds the warm sun.
God’s eyes will see
Who loved me
And who I loved.
You’ll remind me, and I’ll remind you, to be like Him.
He puts the lonely in families
Not just because they are alone:
You are needed
You are loved
This is your place
In every way that matters most, you are family.
