What make a family?  Is it blood? A piece of paper from the courthouse? A lifelong friend?

I'm not sure....mostly people think of family as a constant...something permanent....but is it?  When family members die, are they still your family?  If your family is a group of soldiers who have been through hell with you, do they cease to be your family once the white flags are flown?  I don't know.....

How many people are "family" by blood and hurt one another beyond many people out there don't know who their birth parents are? 

I love my "blood" family, but I also have friends who are my "family", they are invited to all our events, show up without an invite and help themselves to my refrigerator.  Now that I'm in a new place, are the people who assume I spend holidays with them, look after me when I'm sick or too drunk, make sure I get home safe, considered my current "family".

I don't know.....but I'm thankful for all of them.

Sometimes the holes in your life aren't places where things are missing....but rather places that have yet to be filled in...

3 sides to every story

We have the same story...the only difference is...

It's told from different sides....

Yes I think it's funny.
Friends aren't really friends
do you want to talk about that Eve 6 birthday?
when it was just you and me and what do you want to say?
Go ahead and pick a side because that's what people do
and I wish it could be different but it's just a day in the life
And my lips taste like peppermint and there's a smile on my face
and I DON'T CARE - it's there and I like it
I don't care, I'm not choosing sides,
I'm running away and
I'm on my own team
