This picture of our family was taken about nine months ago, just before our youngest turned two. I'm awful about family pictures. Photos of the kids - plenty of those - portraits with us all, though, I'm not so diligent.
I am posting this one today because I love it, but also because lately I have been surrounded by people with marital problems, relationship problems, family problems. We are far from perfect. Not every moment at our house or in our lives is complete bliss, but, we are a family. We are sealed together forever. We will work together, play together and learn together. I am grateful every day to a loving Father in Heaven who allows me to fix mistakes, grow as His daughter, and be my own person. In a world that seems to be full of contention and discord, I am secure in the knowledge that my family can be forever.
