Family Matters a  Lot

Family Matters a Lot


Have you ever thought who family is or what the word family means? Well , people do have different definitions of what family is.The most known definition is that family refers to a group of people who are related by blood. For example, brothers , sisters, parents, grandparents, cousins etc. Some people would take people who they have helped or have been helped with as family even though there is no blood relations. Family to them does not necessarily mean blood relations but anybody who is loyal and helpful enough to be regarded as a brother or a sister to them.

Here is a short poem of what people refer to as family.

“Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.”

— Lisa Weed
