Family isn’t always about your blod relations. There are people who you come in contact with and then they stay with you; right beside you or in boundless physical distance. Who you know you can always count on in times that you are down and in need of support. Without asking why and knocking you off with disheartening words, they readily come to your side or listen to you talk of your woes over the phone. Without saying judgmental comments in between, but listening to you silently, an unshakable tower of quiet strength you know you can always count on.
