The Mark of a Good Family

Dear Reader,

Okay, maybe it is not THE mark of a good family but I think a great test is this: when you visit, do you want to be treated like family? Now we all show different faces when it is just family or when visitors are present. But I also think you can get a pretty good idea of how the family members treat each other if you are observant. I have some people I visit (some extended family) who would say they are treating me like family when I am there, and I just want to say, “Can’t you treat my like a guest?? A stranger??” Because I know they are on better behavior with people they don’t know, and frankly, I’d rather they treat me like that. But other families, who try their best to make me feel at home, I really wish I were their family. Because as nice as they are, it seems like it would be even better to really belong there.
