FC: Family Memories...
1: by the commitment | "In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create; by the memories you share; | of time, caring, and love you show to one another; and by the hopes of the future you have as individuals and as a unit."
2: "God has given us no greater blessing than that of belonging to a loving and loyal family - and it will be so, always and forever."

5: "If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you'll be going, 'you know, we're alright. We are dang near royalty." - Jeff Foxworthy
7: "A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us when adversity takes the place of prosperity when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." --Washington Irving
9: "For the mother is and must be, whether she knows it or not, the greatest, strongest, and most lasting teacher he children have."
10: "I'm just a crazy kind of girl. I'll tell it to the world. I've only just begun having fun."
