On another note, my mom also had a birthday this weekend. Yay for her! We gathered together and celebrated. My brother was also in town and the five of us had a wonderful time being a family. It was so great to be with them.
This is a big year for my family. There are two weddings and two new people joining the original five. It will be a lot of change. But change is good, right? That's what they say. It's good but not necessarily natural or always easy. Change usually excites me but I am particularly bad at change when it comes to my family. It can sometimes be hard for me to adjust. I can be kind of stubborn.
Change can make us better. It causes us to stretch and grow. It eventually causes us to look outside ourselves and see a bigger picture. I am excited about this change in our family. I am looking forward to adding a sister and a husband. To adding new traditions and new norms. Change is good. This is good.
