Family is one of the cornerstones of your existence. You may not get to choose them, but they are yours nonetheless. Family is just another word for your roots; it's the entity from which you grow, learn and receive.In turn it is your duty to be the best parent to your kids, the best kid to your parents, the best sibling to your brothers and sisters, the best cousin to your aunts and uncles. And always make an effort to make your in-laws feel welcome and wanted.Spend time with your family. As much as you can and as long as you can. Getting to know them gives you ties to your past and provides you with strong bonds that you will be able to treasure in the future. Don't hesitate to capture those moments of love and sharing for posterity, so that all the generations that come after you will know where they come from and how blessed they are to belong to such a wonderful group of people.And of course, to give the Internet a chance to make fun of you for the rest of time.
