What family means to me is someone who loves and cares about you unconditionally. Family is someone who has your back when you’re in trouble. Family is who you can trust and count on them. Family is where life begins, and love never ends.
And here’s a quote that I found about family, “if the Family were a boat, it would be a canoe that makes no progress unless everyone paddles.”
So what I think they are saying is that a family can’t work unless everyone comes together and work as a team to get through the tough times in life. And I know you can’t always choose your family, but a family can choose you. Blood does not make the family. The love inside the house makes a family.
Here’s a song that I found about family. Feel free to sing along if you know the lyrics: https://youtu.be/eBpYgpF1bqQ
