This month has been all about family for us. First we took a 10 day trip to Canada and then I had my husband's sister and her family staying at our house for the last 2 weeks...I have loved it! There is nothing like family. Of course, they are the people that can push all your button's and make you madder then you knew you could get AND THEN on the other hand they are the people that know you the best and you can be yourself! They bring out my best and my worst. They help me remember who I am and who I want to become. Do you know what I mean? I love my family and the spouses my siblings married. What are the chances of that? AND, on top of that, I love the family I married into. Spending time with Matt's sisters is like being with my own sisters. I never thought I would be so lucky. Family is a blessing!

Life is short. Shorter then I'd like to admit. While I'm here I will pour myself into family and friends. Don't forget about friends. When family live far away friends become family. I have women in my life that I would happily say they are my sisters. Sometimes we even fight like sisters! I am thankful for the people God has put around me. I don't take it for granted.
