My brother and my sister in law Heidi came to visit last weekend and after they left I felt an overwhelming sense of joy for being able to have family around. To celebrate each other’s accomplishments, and to relax in each other’s company whether in silence or in deep conversation. I feel incredibly proud of the both of them and am happy to call them my family.
My brother is a firefighter in Lodi which is respectable and impressive in itself, and Heidi is a high school math teacher. YES she majored in math at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo,a major accomplishment in my eyes, and I am in awe of her disciple and smarts.
Overall I am thankful for the time I get to spend with my loved ones and I realize…I am blessed. So so blessed.
I’ll end with this quote that I found on pinterest: “Family: Like branches on a tree we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.”
