You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
I have been reading a very good book called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin who also has a blog. One of the things that gives us great pleasure is in giving, which I realized in reading in her chapter about "friends" and in particular about just being generous. Not because we have to or some obligation, or even for a 'return', although the return I get is great happiness. I believe this is what this Bible verse means.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down,
shaken together to make room for more, running over,
and poured into your lap. The amount you give will
determine the amount you get back."
