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