Last week, I talked about my friend Darla. How I’ve known her for about 24 years, and we’ve been through a lot together and apart for a while. This week, I want to share Melanie with you. She’s another close friend, and it’s possible she and I have been through more in a shorter period of time, than Darla and I have. #familyisrelative #friendsascloseasfamily
When you think of “family,” what comes to mind? Mother, father, siblings, grandparents. Aunts, uncles, then cousins. Interesting what some of the synonyms of family are: intimate, household, personal, private. #familyisrelative #friendsascloseasfamily
To me, family can be anyone I’m close to. I have extended close family. A brother, sister-in-law, and great-niece in California, a brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece here in Pennsylvania. They’re part of the family. And they have other parts of their family.
