Gratitude Post # 10~My Family

I am so very thankful for my family. My immediate family is my husband of 37 years, our oldest son, his wife and their children (they live in Colorado), my youngest son (not married yet) and my sister that lives with us, her son, his wife and their two young children that live in Louisiana.

While I have no aunts, parents, cousins or any family other than my sweet sister, I do have my husband's two sisters that love me like their own sister and their husbands and all their children. I am a rich woman to have so many wonderful extended family members that I love and that love me.

Family is my world I suppose because I did not have one as a child or anything close to a normal family. I am so humbled that I am loved and that God gave me a family to love and to love back.

So with this season of thanksgiving upon us, I want to say thank you to them. They love me no matter what...they lift me up and make me feel worthy and loved. Yes, I am indeed blessed.

I know what you mean about family and its importance, especially when it isn't large and there aren't dozens and dozens of relatives.to surround you. My sons and their families are so very important to me. My parents have gone to heaven and other than a sister thousands of miles away from me, my boys and the families they have blessed me with are worth a million dollars a million times more.

Family is everything! You gave a wonderful tribute to your family. I don't know what I would do without my family. A good gratitude "Family"

I'm so very thankful for family also. The family we choose are equally important to life as the ones we are born into.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! I wanted to return the visit. We have family in east Texas. :)

My family drives me nuts....but I wouldn't trade them for the world! Family is what its all about. I don't know if you've shared about your childhood here or not, but I am curious how you grow up with no parents....I am glad you are surrounded by wonderful people now.
