“God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends.” – Ethel Mumford

I love this quote! And okay, I love my family, we have our “things” but for the most part I’m lacking in the “my family is so crazy I have an excuse for all by bad behavior and decisions” arena. Although sometimes that would be a great out. But truly, I can’t say enough about how important our chosen families are, like Gracie, I don’t know where I’d be today without her unfaltering support and friendship. Ladies-having-coffee

Our family may be our roots, but our friends are our branches, helping us reach for the stars.
