We don't choose our family, God places in the one where we need to be! I'm thankful to have been raised in a family that loved me and did their best for me. My parents have passed on, but leave wonderful memories of their love to hold on to. The family I was raised in is small in number, but big in love.
The family I married into, was also ordained by God and I am so thankful!! Much bigger and more traditional, but a true blessing.
AAHHH, family...and I'm so thankful for them!
