We don’t always see eye to eye. Loud grandma, hyper niece, perfectionist sister, forgetful aunt, laid back uncle, eccentric brother, creative cousin, quiet in-law, many different titles all with different personalities and temperaments. What makes us even think we can all get along? Is it because we fall under the grand title of ‘family’?
Arguments and laughter, hugs and frustrations, games, teasing, conversations and cold shoulders are all part of fabric that makes up family. In the end, we try to get along because we are family. We try to make good memories together so that one day we can recall the good times of the past, and laugh about them. Nothing and no one can break the ties that bind us as family, except for ourselves.
On this weekend when many families get together for the holidays let us be most thankful to our Lord, but then let us be verbally and with actions, thankful for the family we are truly blessed with…
…whether we think they are a blessing or not!
