This weekend went by so fast! We were busy from Friday night until about 10 minutes ago when we got home from Young Life.
I'm taking 3 days of thankfulness and wrapping them up into something that has been on my heart lately...
I have quite the eclectic family structure. Most of the time divorce brings out the worst in people, have negative associations and most of the time when I tell people my parents are divorced I get a sad reaction, "Oh, I'm sorry". Yeah, it's sad and I absolutely have my issues from it but I have come to really be thankful for what I have as a result. I have gained more grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins because of it. Recently at my baby shower, everyone went around and said how they knew me...I had at least 4 grandmothers there...I remember Kelly coming up to me afterward and asking HOW that was possible, the math just didn't add up! Seriously who wouldn't want more grandmothers?!
I have also gained another family marrying Greg. Again, most people talk about "in-laws" like they are talking about getting a root canal. I love my in-laws! Now, how many of you can say that?! (hopefully a lot of you).
Now, it's not all rainbows and unicorns all the time but I love my crazy family. I'm thankful that Everlee gets to grow up in a family like this and I'm thankful I have them too!
