I saw this on FB today. It was so pretty and, of course, I clicked "like" and shared it. Then I got to thinking about it a little more.
Who exactly are our family? Parents? Spouse/partner? Siblings? Yes, yes and yes. More than all those, our family are really our children.
So many times I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a complete family. Without my children, there would be an emptiness and void in my life.
I know there are people who say they don't want kids. They are happy without them. I'm not saying they are unhappy. I'm just saying that they miss all the joy of having children. Later when grandchildren come along, it is a luxury that money cannot buy.
Maybe I speak for myself only but I think Stephen feels the same way. Our lives wouldn't be complete if we didn't have the children in it.
Counting the days till my girls come for their holidays!
