Write about friends that are like family.

I am an only child, but I have sisters.

This friends-who-are-family thing was modeled for me early on. My parents make lasting, deep friendships. If someone is worth having around they’ll become family in time.

I’ve never worried about the quantity of friends I have, it’s always been more about the quality of those people. And so I have friendships that are in their second decade that I treasure.

Friends who are family are even better than real family, because you get to choose them. You get to choose to keep them. Every day it is a conscious choice to stay in touch. Because you love them.

So here’s to my sisters who I don’t share blood with. You mean the world to me.
