Is it you, your significant other, and your child(ren)?

Is it your mom and dad?

How about friends? Are they your family?

What is YOUR family?

I suppose it's fitting that I answer my own question!

To me, family means my husband and my daughter. I don't have a super close relationship with my own family, and am very grateful for DH's family. I would consider a few close friends as being family... but really, when I say family, I think of DH and DD only.

What is YOUR family? WOW this is a loaded question & i can go on & on about this,, i know i don't post much here but i'm wide awake so i hope you don't mind ... Well my family is ( & no matter how much i can't stand him,, he is still my father) My step father who i to have a love hate thing with,,,,my mom who's passed & brother,,, I had some friends growing up who i concidered fam.. but that's done now... So yeah i guess i have gotten close to a couple other people whom i do concider great friends but not fam.. yet

Other than that I have a blended family & we are sure blended... it is a long storey that went from bad to worse but we will make it work some how some way..so i have my hubby his daughter ( the queen bee ) then my daughter & our daughter

I love his parents to death ,, but i have always felt closer to his brother than the parents...

My family includes everyone I love and trust and excludes those that I don't love nor trust.
