New DELIVERY MAN Movie Trailer And What “Family” Means To Me! #DeliveryManMovie

My "Maiden" Family

I am pretty much an open book. Ask me anything and I will be extremely honest with you. However, when I was recently asked "What does 'family' mean to you?", I became speechless. Then, I got emotional.

I consider my "maiden" family to be my parents, sisters and brother. What do they mean to me?


In fact, they mean so much to me I did this ten years ago. The "G" is the first letter in my maiden name. The colored "dots" are the birthstones for each person in my maiden family. Yes, this is a tattoo (minus the frame and title).

My Extended Family

To most people, "family" are those individuals you are related to by blood. To others, it can include very close friends who are like family. As an example, I have a really great friend I have known since high school. She is like a sister to me. We used to be inseparable. Spoke every day on the phone, got together when our schedules allowed, etc.

Then, life happened. We graduated from college, she moved on to graduate school and I moved out of state, got married, and had kids.

A spouse and the members of his/her family typically become a part of yours. Since I am separated from my husband, this no longer applies to me.

My Blogging Family

I also consider some blogging collegues part of my family. Matter of Cents launched in January 2011 and, since then, I have formed relationships with a select few for whom I would do anything. I would even go as far as to consider one or two my virtual sisters. I haven't met them in person yet, but hoping that will happen soon.

If you are willing to share in the comments below, I would love to know: What does "family" mean to YOU?

My brother recently proposed to his girlfriend. You can see how we celebrated their engagement here.


  1. Family to me is everything. We just recently added a daughter-in-law and granddaughter to ours so we now total 20 (including parents, siblings and families). Loved your post and I look very forward to this movie.

      Congrats on the new additions to your family! I am looking forward to seeing the movie too. 🙂

  2. I love Vince Vaughn! I really want to see this! To me, family isn't always about who is related to you by blood. It's about the people who are there when you need them, even if maybe sometimes you don't really "want" them there! The people who stick by you, support you and can tell you honestly without hurting your feelings "that sweater looks horrible on you!" It's about loyalty, love and bonds that go way beyond blood. Many of the people I consider family are not blood relatives, and some of my blood relatives are not family, if that makes sense!

      It definitely makes sense, I completely agree….and love Vince Vaughn too! 😀  Thanks for your feedback.
