Family is not always blood. It is the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what. Unknown.
International Day of Families is annually observed on May 15. This holiday was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993. The first observation took place on May 15, 1994.
Family plays a significant role in the life of every person as well as the whole society and are detrimental to the future of the individual.
What does family mean to you?
My family are my close friends who phone me with their joys and lows, my blood relatives, who I do not see often but attend their or their children's birthday parties. Family is someone who is there for me during my highs and lows and rejoice in my achievements and encourage me when I need it.
Family is having a shoulder to cry on, having tears roll down my face from belly laughing with them. Family is especially important, and I am very blessed to have a great mix of family.
Happy International Family Day.
