People Who Touch Our Hearts

They say you can't choose your family, but you can choose your friends... This may be true, but there is no other family in the world I would swap mine for. That is why I dedicate todays blog to them! :)

Something I learned about family is no matter how bad you screw up they never cut you away, because 'the people who care about your screw ups don't matter, and the people who matter won't care about your screw ups'

In life there are very few people who can see you for who you really are, and still love you, it is not a prerequisite for family members to have this acceptance. I consider myself very lucky to be blessed with such an amazing, open, loving family. They always make me smile, and laugh, and know when I need a hug, and when I need to be left alone. They make me strong by being four of the strongest people I know. I love each of them uniquely, and I always will.

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." 
-Desmond Tutu

 "People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away."
