Family

Today's Sunday Confession prompt:
FAMILY


Ahhh....family.  What is there to be said?  I was hoping there would be some warm and fuzzy posts but you know, life with family isn't always like that and I'll be the first to say it.  I've got a couple confessions today so I'm just going to share them all with you.  

Truth be told...I've always been envious of close families.  Growing up, we didn't live near any of my cousins.  Not close enough to have a relationship where we interacted daily, weekly, even monthly.  And while we were taken up to visit sometimes, got to go to a birthday party or two, and we occasionally played together...I've never felt as close to them as they appear to feel towards each other.  Families where the whole clan gets together for things like holidays, family reunions and events is practically foreign to me.  

I've always believed friends are family you choose.  Past and present...I've had some truly awesome people in my life who taught me about life, love and myself.  And I've "chosen" some pretty rotten "family" sometimes.  

Sometimes, it really creeps me out when I look at a family and they all look too much alike.  Like the Kardashians.  

My family is everything.....my joy, my love, the reason I drink and more than likely why I'll end up in prison someday.  

The older I get, the more I think I would like a family...and the less I think I'll be able to have the one I want or one at all. 

I'm amazed at how close I feel to people I've never even met...women I would love to call sister, people who embrace me wholeheartedly for who and what I am...sometimes more than my real family.  The internet is an amazing thing.

I drink at almost all family functions.
