A post for my Mommy : )

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.
~Author Unknown
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
~Desmond Tutu

Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family.
Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
~Jane Howard
The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape,
nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.
~Dodie Smith
The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works is the family. ~Lee Iacocca
The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
~Erma Bombeck

We cannot destroy kindred: our chains stretch a little sometimes, but they never break. ~Marquise de Sévigné
Family faces are magic mirrors.
Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.
~Gail Lumet Buckley
Are we not like two volumes of one book?
~Marceline Desbordes-Valmore
