Family Day

today in canada is family day although i'm not doing anything special i thought ~ would post a few quotes about families

A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.

-- Ogden Nash

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

-- Desmond Tutu

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.

-- Barbara Bush

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

I think people that have a brother or sister don't realize how lucky they are. Sure, they fight a lot, but to know that there's always somebody there, somebody that's family.

-- Trey Parker

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible -- the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

-- Virginia Satir
hope everyone has a good family day
