These people. So wonderful, for all my life, but especially these past few months. They have been inexpressibly helpful, and have done so much for me.
Encouraging embraces, wise counsel, running errands, completing tasks, making appointments, etc. I can’t even count all the ways they have been gracious and fantastic during this busy season of my life.
Family is forever. Whether made up of good relationships, stressful, bad, intense — family is forever.
For me, our four person unit is a rock, a safe place, an atmosphere for honesty and vulnerability, for help and growth. Leaving and cleaving is a good, rich part of life, but this will always be my foundation, no matter how old or how far I go. And for that I’m thankful, that it was these specific human beings.
Legacy, learning the ways of life and love, being about to develop strong wings.
I am who I am because of these people, growing up with them, around them, being taught and impacted by their choices. Blessings. Lessons. Growth from trials. Sharpening from conflict.
Fills me with joy when I reflect on this unit, and it breathes life and strength into my future steps.
I’m excited to celebrate my wedding day with them by my side.
