A Family Is...

A family is...a deeply rooted tree with branches of different strengths all receiving nourishment from an infinite source.

A family is...where character is formed, values are learned, ethics are created, and society is preserved.

A family is...where all members contribute a share, cooperate and work, and accept their responsibilities toward the good of the group.

A family is...where holidays are celebrated with feasting, birthdays acknowledged with gifts, and thoughts of days gone by kept alive with fond remembrances.

A family is...where each can find solace and comfort in grief, pleasure and laughter in joy, and kindness and encouragement in daily living.

A family is...a haven of rest, a sanctuary of peace, and most of all, a harbor of love.
