Visit Your Relatives Day: Funny quotes & sentimental sayings about family

See also

May 18 is all about family. It’s Visit Your Relatives Day, an annual “holiday” that celebrates family!

Let’s be frank. Most of us lead very busy, hectic lives. Between the career, the kids, housework and the yard, there simply are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything on our never ending to-do lists. And sometimes, relationships we hold near-and-dear to our hearts can suffer due to our busy lifestyle.

Today serves as an important reminder to take a moment out of our day, and visit a relative. If you can’t do it in person, pick up the phone and give them a call. And if you have a family member in a nursing home, why not surprise him or her with an in-person visit?

Life is short. Visit a relative today.
