We are that family that's crazy loud.
We are that family that enjoys being together. Lazying around after meals, flung over sofas, rough-housing with the kids, and eating too much dessert.
We are that family that loves deeply.
We're that family with that bonding glue of our love for God & our need for Him in our lives.
We are that family with grandparents that love these grandkids like crazy.
Heck, that love their kids like crazy.
We're that family when all the grandkids come together can be absolutely chaotic, obnoxious, totally sweet, super amazingly fun or absolutely annoying.
We're that family that makes freaking delicious food.
We are that family who realizes the importance of a photograph.
That tries to make the most of the time we have together.
That messes up.
That gives it a go another time.
That doesn't give up.
I'm proud of this family of mine. I'm so grateful my kids have these people to live life with.
No, it's not perfect. It's far from it. But if I've learned anything this last year filled with losses...it's to appreciate and love all the time we have together. Whether it's crazy chaotic or peaceful and perfect. Just enjoy it.
I'm thankful for them.
