Thicker  Than   Water

Brothers might quarrel and sisters fall out, but don’t let anyone come between them, because blood is thicker than water!


Cousins might live on different continents and seldom meet or text, but don’t let anybody fault one of them, for blood is thicker than water!


On a wedding day list, the first names to be written are uncles and aunts; for after all,                       blood is thicker than water!


Friends are precious, we choose them freely, but when push comes to shove, family is first ‘cause

blood is thicker than water!
