Throughout my 25+ years, whether things were going well or I was at a point of seemingly no relief, God has always brought me to a place beyond anticipation. And, when it comes to my expectations being exceeded, the family I married into is NO exception. They are definitely the “icing on the cake” that I didn’t even know to ask for: because I couldn’t have. My parents/brother/extended family are just amazing, and to now have another handful of people who love me nearly as much is, for lack of a better word, unreal.
I remember when Stan and I began dating, and someone would ask me who I was seeing, this is how the conversation ALWAYS went:
Other person: “Who are you dating?”
Me: I would say his name.
Other person: “Oh! He’s related to so and so, right?"
Other person: “They are SUCH a neat family!”
*And, that’s how it went. Always. And, I'm here to say firsthand: they were right.*
To Stan's family: Thank you for molding my husband into the loving, godly partner/father he is today, and thank you for welcoming me as your own. I love you :).
Here is Anniston with her Janjan and Pops during their most recent visit:
*Note: Aunt Meg and Uncle Bryan were here visiting as well, but since the little Auntie was sick, she wasn't near Anniston, and therefore: no pics :(. But, I love her and her hubs too...so much.
