Family / (ˈfam-lē)

A couple of things have happened recently which have made me really re-evaluate what the word "family" means. Traditionally, the word family has been associated with people of the same blood relation though I would argue that in this growing world of ours, everyone with a significant impact on your life can be counted as family because they each play a role in how you have been and are being shaped. For me, family (and you know who you are) are the ones who I find myself thinking about in the oddest of moments -- before I go to sleep, during a movie, when a certain song come on. How do you define family?

My biggest worry is that they don't know how much they mean to me. Think of the ones you love often.
