The virtual book tour continues with a stop at Blossom’s corner of the blogosphere. Blossom is a wife, mother of 2, blogger, and homeschool teacher extraordinare. I met Blossom when we both reviewed for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Though I have never met Blossom face to face, I am blessed to call her friend. She reviewed The Secret of Counting Gifts for me when I released it as an eBook and is also willing to let me hang out with her today and tell the story of the story… the story of family.
We stood together, just the six of us. On a day when we buried one, we huddled… holding and upholding. When others said…we’ll be there. I said… no. All I wanted, all I needed was my family. I gathered them around me… my parents, my man, and my kids together. It was enough.
Family… that group of people who are defined by blood lines, and maybe more. Sometimes those closest to our hearts do not share the same family tree. We cannot chose our relations but we can choose to redefine the term family to include those who are closest to us. Those we live life with… the ones to whom we cling when the storms of life roar and the winds threaten to overflow us….
