My family means to world to me and I would be lost without them sometimes. I was not really raised by my parents but more by family friends and foster homes. I do now keep in contact with my mother my father is passed. I have 1 biological older sister and I love her to death. My sister means the world to me and so does her family. I also have younger siblings from my foster homes that I love to death also. I was just wondering what does your family mean to you? I also love my kids to the end of the earth and back.

In my family, there is my mother and my husband. I love them very much. There isn't anything I would not do for them. God, my mother and my husband are my life.

My family means the world to me. At the moment there's an issue with my brothers girl friend, she keeps doing "things" which everybody hates yet my parents always think of my bothers feelings instead mine. ^ if she was to push in much more those feelings I hold for family would soon change because what I feel is important. otherwise I do think family should stick together and be fair, I'd do anything for mine (actually family) :) ~Joey

My family is so important to me. In fact, everything that I do begins and ends with my family. I pray everyday for every member of my family--their needs, their safety, their welfare, etc. I am investing my time, energy, emotions for my family...I am working now to ensure the future of my children. Me and my husband's plans for the future always included our family. Since we have only two children, it's not difficult to do this. It's good that we share the same view about how important our family is to us.

Family to me is the most important thing we have- I love my family also- My mom is like my best friend- My parents live within 5 miles from me- My brother and family live in Kansas- He is in the Army still (since 1990)- almost time to retire- Right now he is serving in Iraq- til May 2008- : ( I miss him dearly- My daughter is the most important person in my life- She is so precious! The things I do are for her- I am also very close with all my cousins and their families- We were raised very close! and we carried it onto to our adult lives and our families!

My family is the most important thing to me , without them I would be nothing . I love my children more then life itself and would do anything for them . My husband is my life as well , him and I have been through so much over the years that we have been together that I don't know what I would have done without him . To me family is very important , without family you don't have much in life .

my family is very important among all the people sorrounding me because its the one who gave me life, the one who thought me a lot of things. Whatever happens to the world, its still your family. Whatever problems you gave your family, they are still there to support and accept you. We filipinos are known to have a close-family ties, that even if we got married, we still live in our family, so sometimes it becomes an argument to some other couples.

Family is what holds me together most times. It is the glue that keeps me grounded. I have 3 children that are the very world to me and i would be so lost without them they keep me holding out hope that life will get better. My mother is the rock that i see that if she was able to do it i can too. My sister also has made strides in her life that I look to for support and understanding. I also have a mother and sister in laws that are very special, They are just like my very own mother and sister and are there for me when i need just about anything. So family is very important to me though i havent mentioned many but my close nit of them are the only ones that i need.

Family has great importance in every one's life and we cann't deny it . In my life my family is very very special and my life is nothing without them . If all are social animals that's why family concept is ery common among us and it is a always a gud feeling that u have some persons that really care about you and are ready to do anything for you.

My parents are alive but I do not consider myself close to them. I do take care of mom and I hate her, I hate dealing with her and thank god she is in a nursing home or I would probably have commintted susice if I had to deal with her in my home any longer. Dad does not care to spend any time with my two sisters and I so we consider ourselves alone. We have each other. Our older sister is 18 mothes older than my twin and I and my twin is 10 minutes older than I am. I am the baby if you call it that. My sisters and I are very close my twin and I talk to each other almost everyday on the phone and my older sister and I talk about once a week. My older sister works full time and takes care of our grandmother and has an eight year old son so she is very busy. My twin and I are disabled and so we do not work so we have more time to spend with each other on the phone. My twin and I have alway been closer. My children and I are close but they are busy with their lives so I do not see them or hear from them much, I miss them.

Very very important to me. My family is the one who raised me to become who i am right now. They are the one who taught me to respect people and gave me the education which very meaningful to me. And also they are the one who taught me to love God above all things. My family is very supportive in what i want to do. They are the one who brought me into this world to live with harmony and start my own family and serve the Lord. And most especially my family is the blessing which God gave me. I love my family very much....

Family is very important. Family to me includes my parents and my grandmother, my children and grandchildren, my brother and sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and a few close friends. We will be having family reunions coming up in July, as we do every year. We try to get everyone from all over the United States to come together in one place for these reunions.
