This past week my family buried my grandmother. Though, it has been quite difficult to watch my family grieve this loss; it has been refreshing the love and support poured out from individuals outside of my blood. Blood are people who are in your life and you have no choice on them being a part of your family. But bonds created throughout our lifetime helps to create extensions of our family, which in essence makes them family.
I’m very grateful for my blood that I love dearly, but also for the individuals whose bond has made them become a part of my family.
