I am grateful for having a wonderful family. Being part of a clan of 7 children I grew up with lots of love, lots of laughs and lots of lessons.
We are all long out of the nest and living our lives…some with families of our own, some choosing not to have children. We continue to enjoy a close knit family as adults and I hold our relationships so special in my life.
“The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste,coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.” ~Erma Bombeck
