So, last weekend, I went with my buddy to see Deadpool 2 and in the movie, Deadpool said one line over and over again…, “Is Family another “F” Word?” Or a variation of that line. Now, what that means is, is Family a bad word? First of all, let’s discuss families. They come in all shapes and sizes, and all families are different. There Moms and Dads, there Moms and Moms, Dads and Dad, Step-Dads, Father-In-Laws, Mother-In-Laws, Kids sometimes in the family, cousins, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents. Of course, thats just out blood related family. It’s also possible to have a family made up of friends. Just because they’re not related, doesn’t mean they’re not family. Take me for example. I have a friend who I’ve known since first grade that I consider a brother and a friend I’ve had since first grade that I consider a sister. Then, there’s myself, Meah, Gabi, Katie, Emma, everyone at Miss Gabi’s Art is Good Studio. We’re sort of like a little family of friends, we’ve bonded and we look out for each other and help and support each other when necessary. So, in that respect, we’re sort of a family. In fact, generally, thats what families do. They love each other, respect each other, help each other, all that and more. Here’s the “F” part of it though. Families fight, they argue. Sometimes, in families, there’s loss or they hurt your feelings, that’s the bad part of families. However, that said, that is life. There’s good and bad in everything, and the good in a family far out weight the arguing, the fighting, the loss that might experienced from time to time. All that is part of life and it makes a family stronger really. My point is this. First of all, Families come in all different forms, so, if you’re family isn’t a typical family, thats great because there is no such thing anymore. Secondly, family is a great things and its something to be treasured and it is definitely not another “F” word.
Alright, that’s about all the time I have for today, so, until next week, take care, be safe, and goodbye everyone, have a great weekend, I’ll see you right back here next week!
