There's nothing like coming home from work, and the first thing I hear is “daddy are you home?” Then it's the smiles and the hugs, kisses, and the giggles. It could be the worst day in the world but in that moment everything turns around because of my family. I grew up in a large family of 9. That is not a typo. It was a lot of fun and I still wonder how my parents did it to this day. But I learned quickly the importance of family. Family is there to provide advice and support to us in good times and in bad. Often family does not only refer to the immediate blood relatives, but also the friends and groups of people we surround ourselves with on a daily basis. Embrace and cherish the moments you get to spend with your family, and that feeling of comfort you get when are surrounded by those most dear to you.
