A bunch of humans relating to each other?
Blood flowing in each others' veins?
Or love flowing through each others' hearts?
Or not.

Family stands around, gathers, eats and chats, superficially or closely, feigning interest or interested, tolerating or loving. Family stands around looking like each other or acting like each other or irritating each other, it's still the same old thing, these generations holding court.

We meet altogether at weddings and funerals.
We meet more often in bits and starts at birthdays for dinner or cake.

I am in awe of the newly assembled. By marriage or birth or not, come with us. We welcome, welcome you to this caring, gregarious and busy bunch, because we already love you just the way you are. Familial love flows through our and your hearts together.
