Today I am thankful for my extended family. My mom comes from a large Catholic family. Most of her siblings married and had families. Now those kids are marrying and having more kids. So, when we all get together for a holiday, there are about 75 people! And we still get together! We have not drifted apart. This is the first year that I will miss Christmas with them. We have missed the big family celebration in the past, but have always made a trip ‘home’ and gotten to see some of them. I am so blessed to have this huge family that cares about me. Remember my post My Family Rocks? That is one of the reasons I love this big, crazy family!!
