The urge to love and be loved is one we are born with. From the moment we take our first breath, we are inextricably intertwined in a loving embrace that will last a lifetime. The family is the foundation of our ability to love and accept love. It is pure love, our first love, our longest lasting love. Family is the place where we discover that love is the most powerful emotion a human can experience. No matter how many times you mess up, embarrass them, they love you anyway. No matter how many times you embarrass them, they will welcome you after they momentarily pretend not to know you. There are always hugs waiting for you. The family is where life begins, and love never ends.
