Feb 10th – Have a Sunday family meal or simply spend quality time with them today.

One of the strongest memories I have as a child is being with my family on Sundays, often for brunch at my grandparents.  I admit that at the time, I did not always want to go, it seemed like it would be more fun elsewhere, but I hold on to those days now in my heart.  A “family” can be what you make of it, they do not have to be blood related… could be friends, relatives, pets, loved ones, possibly an affiliation to which you associate.  I looked up “family” in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definitions are below…  I am not sure that I recommend #8, but your family starts with you, spend some quality time with them today.
