We may not always cheer for the same football team.
We may drive each other up the wall...several times a day.
We may not want to smile for pictures and sit just so.
We may have different ideas of what a fun time really is.
We may not see eye-to-eye and we probably will have different expectations at varying moments of life.
We might yell and scream or give each other the silent treatment.
We may not want to forgive, or forget, or move on.
But we will.
Because, at the end of every day,
we are still family.
We are bonded together both by choice and by God's design.
Eventually, we come to realize that the relationship is not just about
But, rather, it is about us.
And if I had to choose between walking this life alone
or without them,
I would never choose the former.
Because to do that would be to reject one of the greatest gifts
God has ever given me.
