Family: Lorie Ann Grover

Family is either
what you are blessed to be born into
or those people you surround yourself with
who nurture
your body,
soul,
and aspirations.

I am flocked by
my natural family,
my Church brethren,
and then dearest friends
that I am thankful
to count as family.

- Lorie Ann Grover

Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future. ~ Gail Lumet Buckley
