This a second challenge to post three quotes in three days and challenge someone else! My friend Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales has asked me to join. Jacqueline’s blog is a lovely combination of stories both fact and fiction, poetry and proverb. Please go visit her!
Today I challenge: Pamela at K Phoenix!
Here is my quote for today:
“I don’t care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching, they are your family.” – Jim Butcher
Do you have a tribe? A group of people you love as much as any blood relative? I do. They are the people who I can go on vacation with and I don’t care that they see me first thing in the morning with bed head and no makeup. You can show up at their house in yoga pants for movie night. They love me whether I’m funny and entertaining or grouchy and miserable. They can tell me the truth if I ask if that dress makes me look fat! We can burp out loud in front of one another and not be embarrassed. I will love their children, I will dog-sit their dogs. I will cry with them and they with me. I can confide my deepest fears, most personal heartbreaks and share my greatest joys. I don’t have biological brothers and sisters, but I have a tribe. That’s my real family.
