The month of gratitude: Family

"You don't choose your family.  They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."  
--Desmond Tutu
I have a wonderful family who has been nothing but supportive in every decision of my life. They are fun, they are loving, and most importantly, they are quick to forgive me for any stupid thing I have done or any harsh word I have said. That is love.

I have been blessed with amazing parents and I am proud to say that they raised me with a good head on my shoulders. The same goes for Victor's parents. They are wonderful. You always hear about having nightmare in-laws, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I have amazing and supportive in-laws and I am so grateful for that. 

So for this Thanksgiving season, I am grateful now for not one, but TWO wonderful families. I am blessed!
"Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family." --Anthony Brandt
