A Question I have asked myself often and I found myself asking it again this week...."Why was I so lucky to be put in the greatest family on earth?"
We just had our "Ross Reunion" and I loved every minute of it. I am like a child waiting for Christmas when it starts getting close to our family reunion.
I love to be around my siblings.
I love to be around their children.
I love to be around their spouses.
I love to be with my parents.
I love my own little family to be around all of these people as well.
I feel like they are the kind of people that I would want my children to be like. I have been trying to figure out why I love to be around them.
There are two common denominators in every possible scenario. Mom.....and.....Dad!
As I watched mom and dad swing in the hyper swing, cruise across the zipline, laugh hysterically at funny jokes...and some that weren't even that funny. I watched them treat every single person there as if they were the most important person there.
I noticed that they never need to get away from all the "chaos", in fact, they are usually where the biggest crowd was.
I noticed that they loved everyone's meal, game, and especially their children.
I noticed how they quietly but constantly helped anyone who needed it and I figured it out this week..... The reason I LOVE to be with my family is that all of them have grown up to be just like Mom and Dad. And so, I ask myself again "how was I so lucky to end up in greatest family on earth?
