My Family

I'm overwhelmed with love for my family. My two year old is sitting at the kitchen table doing her puzzle sweetly and quietly. My four year old is laying on the floor playing footsie with me and laughing with her fake laugh, and my son lay sleeping in his room. I've had a lazy afternoon and it's given me some time to reflect on my amazing family.
You know what's great about being a Christian? My family doesn't just stop with my adorable children and incredible husband, it extends well beyond that. My kids call our friends Aunt & Uncle, and I love that we share in those relationships that are truly beautiful because of our relationship through Christ. We have brothers and sister, moms and dads, aunts and uncles, all bonded by the blood of Christ! Blood really does run thicker, because the blood that Jesus shed is the strongest common denominator.
