I am glad to be a part of this family ..

That is what my sister and I always say. We have been through a lot in the last few years, but no matter what, each season, roadbump, trial, whatever you want to call it, God has allowed us to get closer and closer together. There are four of us, 3 daughters, one son. Christmas, Easter, weekends, whose house? Mine or yours? Can I bring you some dinner, just wanted to see you today. When is the game?Put that money in your pocket! No, I have it tonight! Just wanted to hear your voice! Have a nice day today at work.
Doesn't matter we WILL be together. When our dad went home to be with the Lord, we banned together, we my son got sick, we banned together and when my son has his surgery soon, we WILL ban together again. We laugh ALL the time. That is something I can remember from my childhood. LAUGHTER! Laughter at the big things and laughter at the small things. There is nothing I wouldn't do for my family - my immediate and my extended. People always tell me you can tell we enjoy being family and yes it is true. It is NOT that we think we are better than any other family, but I know without a shadow of a doubt, that when we need one another, we are there for each other. We call each often and see each other even more than that. It does not matter the distance .. we WILL make sure there is a connection, not only for us, but so our kids can begin to understand how important family is. When there is NO ONE else, there is God and then your family.



Thank you Lord, for Jai Jai, MeMe, Jen Jen, and Jay. Thank you for giving me these wonderful siblings and I pray that you will allow us to continue to create wonderful memories with each other and laughter for our children.
