We don’t …
… go on picnics at the beach. At sunset. While holding hands.
We don’t spend Saturday mornings snuggling in bed with the paper and donuts.
We don’t burst into song or – as I mentioned – jump in bounce houses.
We don’t have 2.4 kids and a big, fluffy dog running around here.
We don’t go camping or roller skating or to parades.
We don’t do a lot of “family is fun!” sort of things.
But we do …
… giggle a lot.
And we do a lot of group hugs.
We cheer for the same teams.
And we consider our family a team.
We eat ice cream sundaes and tacos.
And we take turns clearing off the messy table to make room for dinner.
My family might not be picture perfect. It might not look like any family I see on TV or at church or at the park or in the movies. And, you know, that’s a good thing in a lot of cases!
I love my family. And I bet you love yours…even if it isn’t fairy-tale perfect. Tell us about them! Write a post about your family – what you imagined it would be, what it is instead, what you love about them – and link up!
