Though we live in widely separated parts of the country, I come from a close family. We just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving reunion in Tucson, Arizona. The specialness continued as my older sister and her husband spent several days with us here in Minden. While I am not apologetic for coming from a close and loving family, I realize that many have not experienced such a blessing. For those of you who fall into this category, I encourage you to believe in the possibility, dream of a perfectly loving family, and realize that that is exactly what God has for you even if not experienced in your earthly family.
