Sometimes it is not even your family of origin. It may become the family you have nestled around you of close friends, perhaps co-workers and those friends that may be far away physically yet still close to your heart.
This grouping of significant people in your life brings you the harmony and peace your soul is calling for in difficult times. They not only bring their physical presence but also their kind words and thoughts on cards, food that is lovingly prepared, and the warmth of big hugs.
Yes, all families of any kind can feel difficult and challenging at times and then turn right around to be just the balm that’s needed in the space you happen to be.
Who do you consider your family or as others may say, your tribe of like-spirits that are here to help your soul in this lifetime?
