Family

My family. What can I say? We are closer than most. We have a unique bond. We feel the joys and pains together, as one. When one person hurts, our hearts hurt just as bad. When one feels joy, all of us are joyous. Every bump in the road, we are there together, no matter how many miles separate us. All it takes is one phone call to be made to bring us all together, if not in person, in spirit. I love my family.

Upon hearing the news of my Uncles death, I was greatly saddened. However, I felt comfort, even in the depths of my sorrow. I knew, we will as a family would weather this storm just like we have weathered countless others. We will find strength in each other and with the Lord, we will endure. It is what we do.

To those who sent messages of condolences and prayers the past couple of days, thank you. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. My family reads my blog and they appreciate all the well wishes too. From them, thank you.

I'm just now getting caught up on my blog reading for the past few days, so I just saw the post about your uncle. I'm so sorry, Kat. I'm glad you have such an incredible family to help you get thru such a difficult time. I'll be thinking of you and yours.

How lovely to hear of a family being so close so as to weather the storms.
I this day and age where family seems to be disjoined and a crazy old fashioned word, you are indeed very lucky.
Big love x
