My definition of family keeps changing. I have my husband (and his family), and our children. But I also have friends that I have considered family for over twenty years. Seasons change, and we have changed. My chosen family has changed.
It isn’t personal, it is growth. Change is hard sometimes for me. I like variety in my work, but when it comes to structure of friends and family I tend to be very loyal. That’s is the problem – loyalty isn’t always a good thing. Seasons are required for growth. Love and understanding is required for family.
How is your season of family and friends defined?
