Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

The boys and me

My soul chose wisely by coming to my huge extended family, parents, and brothers.  They are wonderful people and I love(d) them very much, but I can really relate to Mary Engelbreit’s quote “Let’s put the fun back into dysfunctional.”  Thankfully, I have grown in direct proportion to the challenges I have encountered.  I have much to be grateful for.

I am equally grateful for the two souls who chose to come to my husband and me, and to each other.  I occasionally wonder whether my girls are meant to challenge each other as much as my family challenged me.  I know that would be a good opportunity for them, but I have to admit I hope they find their challenges elsewhere, and experience only love, joy, and support in one another.
