According to the dictionary love is a strong feeling of affection that a person has for a person, place, or thing. There are many kinds of love and many ways to show love.

Family love is the love between people who are related. They love because society expects them to love one another. Familys include parents, grandparents, cousins, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles. Being together a lot is a big part of family love. Familys get together for big meals at holidays and they talk and laugh and everyone feels good. Birthdays are another time for familys to be together.

Familys automatically love each other because they share a invisble bond they share a name, genes, history. Not all familys show love but they probably feel it because family love is a given. My parents say that even when some relatives drive each other crazy they still love each other. That is because family love is more important than any argument. So they get over it after a while.

Your family will always be there no matter what. I know I can count on my family and relativs whenever I need them. Sometimes I help my grandma when she goes to the grocery or has a doctor apointment. She always gets me somthing for my birthday. We know we can count on each other because we are family.

Family love comes in many shapes and sizes because familys are different. It is really important in a persons live. Love is defined as a strong feeling of affection but it’s a whole lot more because its not just emotion but you can use your head when you love people too.
