What is a Family?

It’s sharing, comparing, bonding & caring

It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing

It’s praising & knowing, belonging & growing

It’s guiding, providing, trusting, confiding

It’s loving & kissing, nurturing, missing

It’s working & playing, treating & paying

It’s arguing, fighting & often delighting

It’s visiting, hosting & Sunday roasting

It’s relaxing & boring, most reassuring

It’s coaxing & charming, appeasing & calming

It’s waiting, debating, fulfilling, elating

It’s needing & feeding & tactful conceding

It’s driving, conniving, learning & thriving

It’s holding & nursing, worrying, cursing

It’s stressing, confessing & making a messing

It’s loaning & moaning, helping & phoning

It’s bickering, laughing, bedding & bathing

It’s listening, coping, planning & hoping

It’s relying, crying, a little white lying

It’s forgiving & mending, liking, depending

That’s what makes a family!
