There are others just like you...,
This review is from: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters: 101 Unforgettable Stories about Our Nutty but Lovable Families (Paperback)
Do you have a crazy family? Yes, I do too!
Do you love your family with all your heart yet wish there were days that you could just run away from them? At least for a little while? Me too!
When I refer to "this" family...it is generally a reference to my extended family and not my children and husband. Sorry mom and sisters...just being honest....but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.
"They" are the reason I am "me"
Reading Family Matters from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series enforced the idea of what "family" truly is. Family doesn't mean perfect and peaceful everyday of the week but does mean that there is a unity, a protection and a silliness that is only evident with those we love.
Reading Family Matters will take you on an emotional journey from silly to serious. You laugh and relate to many of the stores and you will also cry and empathize with the situations described.
You know the saying..."You can choose your friends...but you can't choose your family", right? Well with Family Matters you can also choose to laugh right along with other families and realize that you are not alone in this crazy life. There are others that are just like you!
