Honestly, it’s not really…at least not what most people consider family. I was never close with my family. My dad left when I was a baby, which meant so did his side of the family. My mom had a pretty large family but they never got along and I wasn’t really around them much- it was always just me and my mom.
I have aunts, uncles and cousins that I’ll never see again and I’m fine with that- our family was never really close.
I feel like that now- my wife and son are the most important people in the world and everything I do is for them. I would literally die for them, but that is about where my family stops. It’s sad to think, but without them, I have no one else.
Even though I have a pretty large family just a few counties over, I wouldn’t even consider 99% of those people friends.
My wife has been by my side for 16 years now and we made our son- those two people are my family and they are important to me because they are my world…without them, there would be no me.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
