You have probably seen the jokes about quarantining with another family but in all seriousness, quite a few of us have been able to truly enjoy our family more than we may ever have these past 8 weeks. Whether it is your immediate family or your friends who are your true family, enjoy and embrace them this Friday. We all need those special people!

In 1994, May 15th was proclaimed as the International Day of Families by the United Nations. That was in response to changing social and economic structures, which have affected and still affect the structure and stability of family units in many regions of the globe. Celebrated globally, the International Day of Families is an occasion to reflect on the work started during 1994 and to celebrate the importance of families, people, societies and cultures around the world.

We should take this day to appreciate those people we have in our lives. Enjoy the people you call Family!!
