Our family is a blended family…two families blended into one… I brought a son and a daughter into ours…Deborah brought a son. When we blended our families together… I gained a son and Deborah gained a daughter. We tried to make the blending smooth…like pouring water into water. One of the wonders of family is how they continue to grow… how nothing is affixed… for along the way we’ve aded four grandchildren to the mix. Not to mention friends who have become family along the way… So we never really know what our family will look like at then end of every day. Through the years, in spite of the friends and family we’d import… the symmetry of our family was always one daughter short. And we were comfortable with this obvious lack of symmetry… until our youngest son found love…and invited her into our family. Now we have a second daughter…and she has another Mom and Dad… and our first daughter is blessed with the sister she never had. Our eldest grandson also found his love…please…stick with me everyone…. because this means we now have two granddaughters…to go with three grandsons… You get the picture…With each new family member…we’re adding to the blend… and it is beautiful knowing this is a process that will never end…. And we look forward with excitement to what our family will tomorrow be… as we blend together for the rest of our lives…in search of symmetry
