In the context of human society, a family (from Latin: familia) is a group of people related either by consanguinity (by recognized birth), affinity (by marriage or other relationship), or co-residence (as implied by the etymology of the English word "family" [...] from Latin familia 'family servants, domestics collectively, the servants in a household,' thus also 'members of a household, the estate, property; the household, including relatives and servants,' abstract noun formed from famulus 'servant, slave [...]' . ) or some combination of these. Members of the immediate family may include spouses, parents, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters. Members of the extended family may include grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and siblings-in-law. Sometimes these are also considered members of the immediate family, depending on an individual's specific relationship with them.

The first time I saw this, I was in an English class, and something about it made me think about my future family and lessons that I hope I will one day teach them, especially my daughter.

A Tribute to Fathers

This was my Father's Day card and I thought I would post it under Family. I hope everyone has at least one family member that is supportive and believes in you!

This mother Jaime Sullivan and her daughter Charlie discuss about their deceased relatives including Jaime's grandmother and the mother freaks out when Charlie says that her mother's grandmother is here and calls her mother a name that she was called growing up. It's amazing how this little girl could possibly know this!
