Family is more than genes and blood

Family is not just a word
for those connected by
genes and blood
but a state of being,
a knowing,
a bond flowing
of those connected
by heART
IN true LOVE.
Family is who
I invite all to be
when i know i am loved
And I overflow and
want you to see
That you too are loved
And it is not i alone
But we
as one,
as a tree,
as family.
So today,
I am
heart overflowing
with THANKS,
for the many
Family Configurations
in which
I get to
Thank you
for choosing me too
to Be
For family is a decision
And it starts with me.
