Family Ties

by Sandy Holt


   Family is one of the many wonderful gifts that God has given us.  While thinking about the gift of family, I came to the realization that family isn’t always blood.  It’s also the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept your flaws; the ones who go out of their way to make you happy!  They think you’re a good egg even though they know you are slightly cracked!  Those people are called friends.  Charles Dickens said, “Family not only consists of those whom we share blood, but also those whom we’d give blood.”

   There have been times in my life when I’ve sat with a friend and couldn’t come up with even one word to say, but I was there for them if they wanted to cry or be silent or just not be alone!  I’ve also had friends in my life that have done the same thing for me.  You can’t buy that kind of friendship.  That kind of friend can make you laugh when you don’t even want to smile and they understand your tears even if you don’t say a word.  I’ve been blessed in my life to have lots of close friends that I love dearly!  So take time today to thank God for those friends in your life who are part of your family.
