We are family

The older I get, the more I have grown to cherish my family.

This is a little surprising to me considering what a rebel and a loner I was for so many years, but honestly; they couldn’t be more important to me now.  And not just the family I grew up with – my husband’s family has become precious to me as well.

We went to David’s Mom’s house in Augusta this weekend to spend time with my husband’s sister, Debbie, who’s visiting from San Diego.  David’s other sister, Vicky, who lives nearby, came over and spent the night on Friday, so we’ve had a lovely day and a half curled up in the living room watching old home movies (OMG, they have tons of home movies!), eating, drinking and taking crazy pictures.

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.

  1. The old videos we found were wonderful! It made me appreciative more of each child and I’m SO glad you were there to watch with us. FAMILY! That’s what it is all about~
