Have you ever felt blessed by those family moments in your life? Whatever your family is, and whomever it is comprised of, are you just thankful that you have those people in your life? I recently had such a family moment. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were celebrating their 25th anniversary, and family and their friends were invited. It was truly a testimony to the anniversary couple that so many people had such great things to say about them, but it also gave me pause to think about how important the family is to the spiritual and physical health of the individual.
I know I am truly blessed on both sides of my family with great family members, and yes, there are disagreements that come up that are touchy and uncomfortable but what a richness and depth all of my family members have given to me! My only hope is that I have returned the gift to them.
