On the other hand

Crazy as family is, they are the first to surround you and comfort you, even if they don’t understand the extremely close bond you have with your animal. So I guess the insanity is worth it for the buffer they provide from the knocks of life. Or maybe I am just very lucky. Between friends and family and friends who are like family and friends who are family, my life is filled with both insanity and love. And the combination makes my life richer than my bank book will ever be.
