Yes, You Can Choose Your Family
Let me just say that I LOVE my family. I love my brothers, I've been blessed with sisters-in-law that are like the sisters I never had and all my nephews and neices are my favorite kids in the world..( besides my own of course). But the only problem with my family is that they live about 8,000 miles away.
So this Christmas we spent the afternoon with our adopted family. These people are more than just friends and neighbors. They have opened up their homes and hearts to us and made us feel like we are part of their family. They even agreed to a few Australian traditions including opening Christmas bonbons and wearing our funny paper hats for a family picture.
So we talked,we shared,we laughed AND we feasted.
Is this the best turkey you have ever seen? And it tasted as good as it looked. Yum!
And we reflected on just how fortunate we are.
