My family! I thank God and I thank you.
I can honestly say that there has never been a day when I didn't feel loved. From the time I was born, I was showered with hugs, kisses and encouragement. My parents and brother have always supported me. They were there when I needed them and there when I didn't think I needed them ;). My parents have always guided me well, but they allowed me to be myself. My brother has been my best friend for close to 23 years.
I was also blessed to have an extremely close relationship with my grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins. Shout out now, to the newest member of the family! My cousin and her husband just had a son. We have shared vacations, laughter, tears of joy and sorrow and we are each stronger individuals because of each other.
I am lucky to say that I now have in-laws that are wonderful. They have welcomed me into their lives with enthusiasm. Marks mom, dad, siblings, grandparents and aunts and uncles have treated me as no less than family since the first time I met each of them (when Mark and I were ONLY dating).
I love you all! Thank you!
