What is the definition of ‘family?’
A group consisting of parents and children living together in a household
The Christmas season brings most families together…
Most of us are fortunate enough to have family to spend some quality time with over the holidays..
I am the first one to admit that I have the unrealistic desire to have what is deemed the perfect ‘Hallmark Christmas’..
The perfect tree, perfectly wrapped gifts, perfectly presented dinner and everyone getting along..
Our family consists of my parents, and my sister and her boyfriend, daughter and son-in-law, my brother and his son..and the three of us..
We are a small group of very different people but we come together for the common goal of spending quality time together at Christmas…
Oh, sure we have had our moments over the years but on the whole we do get along and this year was no exception..
We laughed like we have never laughed before..the discussions centered around the family history..and as each tale was told we all said the same line?
‘This is why I ____?’
A lovely evening spent with the only people in the world who truly understand ‘why we ___?
Cheers to my family!..no family is perfect…we agree to disagree and move on…
‘Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.’
I do believe I am on Christmas stuff overload…my mind is going in every different direction..…I am starting to repeat myself….
time for some retail therapy…
this is why I _____!…
I could fill in the blank with a different word everyday depending on the situation or the mood!..
last day of a four day weekend..where has the time gone!..
On this day three years ago?..our ‘golden boy’ arrived home…our lives have been enriched because of him!..
This is why I _____?
