This is an idea that has been percolating for some time...family.
My heart has come to the conclusion that family is not about those who share a common blood, but more about those who share a common bond.
I am finding that the most powerful bond for me is a common faith...a love of God.
I have found family in my church and a small group that has formed and refused to let our little church die...the D Squareds...Devoted and Determined.
I have found family here in the land of blogging women...family as real and true as any I can imagine. It is amazing to me that almost all of the blogs I follow and care about are authored by faith-full women with big hearts.
I have found family in the friends who have loved me.
I have found family, home, safety and peace with my little husband.
These are the people I will stand for, fight for, pray for and love. These are the people who will stand for, fight for, pray for and love me....
This then, is my family.
I love you.
