The people in your life you call family can be a mixed bag. And it’s up to you to decide who they are.

In today’s post I want to share the most powerful family quotes that aren’t always blood.

To remind you of the power of love and loyalty. And to remind you of the people you’re most grateful for (and don’t forget to tell them, too).
