Tonight we had dinner with a one of our nephew in laws. He was in town for business, and we were fortunate that he had some time to visit with us. We are so glad that we had time to sit and visit with him tonight. He is an amazing young man and a great husband and father. I thought as we drove home tonight… what a blessing family can be in your life. Also how neat it can be to bring someone ( that you never knew before ) through marriage into your lives, and then over the years…they truly become part of your family. Now I know some times you can even have a hard time with those who are blood related to you, but all in all we are very grateful to the in- laws who have become a part of our lives.
It reminds me also how important family can be. How great it is when each family member supports the other, and now to watch the grandkids who are the nieces, nephews and cousin all become friends! I guess that is called the CIRCLE OF LIFE isn’t it? Anyway, it is a blessing to see these nieces and nephews of ours go on to be great Moms and Dads. It is fun for me… Aunt Lynn to be a part of their lives and now their kids lives. I feel very rich and very blessed.
Good night dear friends ( who also feel like family to me! )
