Our families are not perfect.
In life we aren’t granted anything. Admittedly, at times I have taken my family for granted, not intentionally but I have. My heart sinks at the times I could have been a better daughter, a better listener, to be more grateful of what I have been given. Not seeing their value or appreciating them in the moment is my own selfishness. I pray God will always open my eyes to see the best in my family at all times, including my future husband.
I believe as human beings we do the best we can do with our resources talents and time and that’s all we can do. We don’t wake up and say I want to be mediocre today, no. We want our families to be great.
I would not change my family because I know I am loved, cared for, seen and known.
I believe family to be the singlehandedly most important piece to a healthy and vibrant life minus good friends, good health and happy career aka doing what you love.
My prayer during this season to enjoy the precious moments with your family and breathe it in. We are not promised anything. There are a lot of things in life we can get back, but time is not one. Friends may your holidays be blessed, bright and full of whatever lights your family up! Byee
