Inspirational Thursday-Family

What would we do without them? 

Who would love us as they do?  

Who would forgive and forget as no other?  Our Family.

Who can bring us delight and frustration,

 all in the same second, our Family.

They are the very essence of our lives.

They are our Family.

They are the people who we can't wait to call when something goes 

wrong or right-they will laugh with us cry with us and love us.

They are our Family.

As my dear Mother would say "Family loves' you warts and all."

My Mother was my family and I was hers.

Family is the cream in our coffee, Family is the salt in our soup!

We are thankful we have one another-life is bumpy, life is full of 

surprises, friends come and go but Family, is well Family.

Oh, we have our share of this and that, we certainly are far from 

perfect.  But we are a bit like the Three Musketeers-"One for all 

and all for one."  We are Family!

Family-I am so thankful for my family, I am thankful for my 

husband who keeps us safe and warm.  I am thankful for Samantha 

who creates beauty all around her. I am thankful for Amanda who 

shares her bountiful love every day. I am thankful for Rebecca who 

brings daily joy to our lives.  I am thankful for Charles who has a 

keen mind.

So have fun, laugh, embrace one another and know that your 

Family loves you!
