Ah-hum.

If we're taking it back a few years, allow me to refresh my memory. This is from September 2006.

Sunday: Attended a family birthday party in which no one in my family was having any fun. We all tried sticking it out, but after my crying son begged to leave 3 different times, my hubby pulled the plug on it and escorted us all to the car. This sucked. Who likes to leave a 5 year olds party on a wave of drama? Family behavior is a harsh reality, for both sides involved. Family and friends, at times, don't mix well together. Normally, I would choose blood family over friends. Lately, it seems that blood is not thicker than water, and that friends on both camps are becoming more like our family than our family is.

Unconditionally.

My family consists of my dearest friends. They have done more for me than most of my 'real' family, and they are always there.
Isn't that what family is about?? Or at the very least, SHOULD be about?

It's the love that binds, not necessarily the blood. But then sometimes "duty" calls too.
