The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
I can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed our Christmas Holiday so much. As it comes to a close, I find those little tears puddling in the corners of my eyes as I think about just how incredibly blessed that I am. I know that my steps have been ordered and directed by God and my thankfulness to Him goes beyond words. I live out His goodness in my life each and every day.
