Family. We are in East Texas for a few days as my brother and sister in law came into town from California. I haven’t seen my brother for almost two years and it’s been wonderful to reconnect with him and his young family. Many times family can feel like a burden. Differing opinions and old habits can lead to conflict and hurt feelings. I think though we have all embraced our differences and now genuinely love being together. This summer when you are traveling to see family or home from college remember that you are first a witness to your family and that means living a visible #lifeofjoy, being patient and kind to those who probably love you the most. And it always helps to have a backdrop like this.
