Love 'em

"Remember kids, 'You can pick your friends, but not your family!'" 
My great uncle said it with a huge, teasing grin on his face.

I smiled.

My mom's side of the family came over for dinner tonight. 
My great uncle. great aunt. my grandma. my mom's two sisters 
(who should both be named Miss Drama Queen U.S.A.).

Anyway, I just wanted to say 
that I am very glad that I wasn't able to pick my family.

I'm glad that God did it instead.

Because if I was in charge of the proceedings, 
I might have made a terrible mistake
 and not have picked the most perfect family I could ever have.

And that's the one I have right now.
