Also (and this is related), I am thankful for my family’s ability to continue to forge forward. We are all different people. Life has thrown a lot of stuff our way lately. But above all: we care deeply about one another.
I am thankful for the people who surprise us.
Last summer, we had a family emergency, and some first cousins I had only met a couple of times came into town.
These brothers grew up in Kansas, and in a very conservative church. But one night, when they came over to blow off steam and play video games, I invited my girlfriend too.
