I have learned plenty since I started blogging. I doubt there is a whole lot that I've learned you haven't already heard.
So I will make it short and sweet...
The most important thing I have learned is that I have a family here.
And they will...
~love me even when I am not sparkling with glitter.
~not un-friend me when I don't agree.
~take my hand even when my glass is half empty.
~support and uplift me when I am at my lowest and not easy to listen to.
~cheer me on when I'm kicking ass.
~make me smile everyday.
~help me find my marbles.
~sing to me.
~they will even meet me in Chicago.
AND I WILL do the same for them(except maybe that singing thing).
I will leave you with this quote...
"The family endures because it offers the truth within the group. The family endures because it seems to make us feel at the same time unique and yet joined, accepted as is and yet challenged to grow, loved unconditionally and yet propelled by greater expectations. Only in the family can so many extremes be reconciled and synthesized. Only in the family do we have a lifetime in which to do it." ~ Unknown
