In a recent prayer in our department, we were reflecting at the last year and all that we are thankful for. As I look back, I am of course thankful for a lot of things but the one thing I am most thankful for is a significant part of me that I often take for granted, My family.
I am very blessed to have an amazing family and being the younger child has its share of advantages. My family has been my biggest strength throughout my life. I knew I had a good family but I am not sure I have taken enough time to thank God for them.
This post is dedicated to my family my dad & mom, Victor & Daisy my elder brother & sister- in- law John & Amy and my best friend Abinash and I hope to show the world a glimpse of the amazing family God has given me.
A small family you have given me
But with the biggest hearts
They always go out of their way
Whether it’s night or day
Their love is unconditional
Definitely not situational
I have my dad and we are inseparable
Proud of every little thing I do
And is someone I always turn to.
My mom is a dearie,
Love, sacrifice and worry
Keep her merry.
None like another
I hope we’ll be
We have jokes that no one interprets
We have experiences that no one understands
Always was, always will be, my hero.
My Sister-in-law or the sister I never had
Girl talk, gang up or just silly giggles
She’s to be counted on
Stronger and Smarter
Completes my brother
And finally my best friend
Who plays all the above roles,
When my family is away
And is yet unique and a gift.
Strong yet caring
Smart but learning
Teaching but always growing
Loves to talk but stops to listen
To all my gibberish
Always goes the extra mile
Just to bring back my smile.
This is my family and I am thankful for each member and for the role that they have played in my life. I am what I am because of them. I thank God and I pray that I will be able to be to them a part of what they are to me.
As you are reading, I would encourage you to take time to appreciate your family, thank God for them and never take them for granted… If your family has not been there for you, make an attempt to be a family for somebody else, you will be blessed.
Happy Reading and God Bless.
