It is so easy to get caught up in all the stressful things in life, especially when you live in a constant state of stress. I was fortunate enough to be reminded this week of some of those awesome things I have that I take for granted when I’m busy complaining about the more mundane things.
I am so fortunate to have the most incredible family. Not only do I have an awesome husband, but I have the world’s most kick-ass parents, brothers, and sister. Seriously, it’s unfair. I absolutely won the family lottery.
My family is close-knit and loving. No matter what, we have each other’s backs. We’ll make fun of each other (annual gag gifts are the stuff legends are made of), we’ll laugh & cry together, and we do cool stuff together. How many families out there would actually run a marathon together? We may be insane – but we’re insane together. That’s what family is all about.
We aren’t “Leave it to Beaver” all the time. Trust me, we’ve had our tiffs here and there, and we certainly have moments where we get frustrated with each other. But overall, my family kicks ass. They are awesome.
I wish everyone could have the experience of such an incredibly family. I don’t know how I got so lucky.
