Family looks like a group of kith and kin who look out for each other. I'm lucky...my biological family all get along. I'm blessed to have a partner and his family. However, I must add a long list of friends who I've known for years and are non biological family members. many were work colleagues who became friends who became family. I live fifteen minutes from my folks and to my brother and his family, but if I were in a pinch, I know right where to go...my phone's listing of my friends. The "what" would tell me the "who." My partner and I are blessed with two dozen good friends who would help out in a pinch. Until that need arises, I simply enjoy my extended family.
