Life’s First Truth

Swift Sunday

“The family is neither blood nor connection, it is simply who makes us forget we are smiling.”

                                                                                                                                        -Me?

 

Today my foster sister came over with her son for a few hours. I will be leaving to Israel for another year of education, so it was the last time I would see them for a while. We went to an arcade for my nephew and then got some food, it was a good day. We did what we had to do together in a jiffy, because that’s all the time we have with family sometimes.

 

Today I would like to talk about the concept of family and not just how our blood relatives, but the people of the world, become part of our family. 

 

You brush past your future wife, without knowing how much you two will care for each other. We just glance at the love of our lives without a second though, like if they would have been gone the next day we would have never been affected; but we know this already, and we know all about the funny ways the universe works from ‘How I Met Your Mother’, and just the general way things go in our lives. How about the other aspects of our family, at what point do they become family?

Birth

 

When you first saw your little brother/sister, what was the feeling? Was it how your life would change, or just how you will manage to split your room? I personally am an only child, but I could imagine that you accepted that this baby was part of your family. Now fast forward a bit into our adult life, and the time when we have to finally choose what our family we look like. It boggles my mind that life prepares us by forcing a family on us, then lets us choose for ourselves who defines the word ‘family’ in our minds.

 

So don’t just wait around and let the world keep giving you your family, whether you enjoy them or not, they are your family and now you have a chance to choose who the rest of them will be.

Choose wisely, but fairly…
