What is a family?

It’s a group of individuals that come together because they’re related by blood, or because they simply love each other. That’s what we must remember when it comes to family, it’s all about love.

Even though we’re all different, we’re all individual, we have different lives, different perspectives, jobs, relationships, ways of living, when we can remember to communicate with each other and to share our gifts, and our talents, and be accepting of the gifts and talents of others, that’s when the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

That’s when families work.

What I would wish for every family all over the world is communication, love, and acceptance, and the joy that comes from appreciating the gifts and talents of the people you love. Visit mysunrise to know more.
