The Blessing of Family

My Mother helping me to get prepared on my wedding day! 🙂

I’m so grateful for my family! Yesterday afternoon my Mom drove an hour from her home to mine, just to visit me and to help me with several projects around the house.

We went shopping for necessary items, and then came back to my home to get to work. My Mom helped me to organize the cabinets in my kitchen and bathroom. We were able to consolidate things by discarding outdated items, so we could make our living space more usable.

I don’t know what I would do without my family. My parents, brother, and grandmother (along with the rest of my family) are such a blessing to me. Also, my husband’s family has been there for us more times than I can count. Without them I don’t know where we would be–truly!

I really believe that one of the biggest ways that God has been providing for us is through our families. When we think we’ve hit rock bottom, they are there with just the right help and support that we need.

Thank you, Precious Father! Thank You for the support and love of our family and friends. Thank you for not leaving us to live this life on our own. You have given us, first and foremost, Yourself. But You have also, in Your great mercy and kindness, seen our need for human love and companionship. You have not left us helpless. You have been–and always will be–our Faithful Helper…One on whom we can fully depend.
