As the day winds down and I think back on the events from earlier I realize that I am thankful for family. I know that seems like a copout, but I don’t mean family in the usual sense, but the idea of family. My family has spread throughout the country so Marie, the boy and I spent the day with people who are not related to us in any way and accept me and my family as members. We treat each other as Cousins, Uncles, Grandparents, etc. and seem to not even notice a difference anymore. I find it amazing that humans can find so much room in their hearts to continually let people in. I hope all who read this have an opportunity to extend their family beyond the borders of DNA or law. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope that everyone had a wonderful day.
