^^^Aren’t my parents just adorable. My dad has always been so healthy, he’s pretty much my inspiration 🙂

^^All of us!
So finally after nearly 10 years, my parents can put a new (updated) family photo in their living room. So over Christmas, my WHOLE family was together for the first time in years! So we took advantage and got some family photos. By the way, don’t be fooled but this lovely, lovely sunshine, it was below 40 degrees! Lately I’ve been feeling so much more appreciative of families…and I hope this comes off the right way, but I’ve also realized how your immediate and extended family unit can change for the worst (fortunately mine hasn’t—we’re all good 🙂 ), it’s out of your control. But what IS in your control is your own little family unit…your spouse, your children…I’m grateful that even if my family were dysfunctional, I can choose how to raise my little ones. And I can raise them with correct principles, and centered around Christ. Again, I’m not hinting at anything going wrong in my life, lol, it just came to my attention recently. I was thinking how much I love my family, and what would I do without them, or what would I do if suddenly we weren’t close anymore…..then I thought, “you know what, you’d be ok, because you have your husband, you have your relationship with heavenly father, and you have your little girl. You’d be ok”
Anyway, sorry about that little rant. 🙂 I hope you’re having a good week. It’s finally warming up here! YAAAAY.
Thanks for reading y’all.
