    I cast my vote for Family.

    I understand that the song is meant to be positive, but every time I hear "I've finally found a wife and a home and a family that matters" I cringe. Why didn't someone clue him in to how horrible that sounds, considering he has children from his previous marriages??

    No need to shout, TT (using all caps = shouting online).

    If Joe means that he was too drunk to appreciate his family in the past, he sure phrased it pretty clumsily because he doesn't say "I've finally realized family matters." Instead, it's "I've finally found a family that matters." He doesn't say HE'S changed. He says it's the family that's changed.

    For the curious, below are the lyrics - to me the emphasis seems to be that the people around him have changed, and that the happiness he describes in the song is a result of having new and improved friends/wife/family, not a result of getting sober.


    =======================

    I've been alone most of my life
    I've never known what it was like
    To end up somewhere and not have to pack
    To be among friends I know have my back

    But now I'm here where I belong
    I've finally found a wife and a home
    And a family that matters, means more to me
    Than anything I have ever believed

    And when we are gathered together
    Tell me how blessed can somebody be

    Give thanks, break bread, say grace, bow heads
    For all of this love that surrounds me
    We laugh, we cry, stand together that's why
    It's all being part of a family

    Tried it before, never felt right
    I never dreamed that someday I might
    Be part of something bigger than me
    It makes me feel humble, finally I see

    All that we have is each other
    And that's all that I'll ever need

    Give thanks, take time to say that I'm
    So grateful for all that surrounds me
    We laugh, we cry, stand together that's why
    It's all being part of a family

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten
