I know I'm one of the lucky ones.

Reading Single Dad Laughing's blog. I'm reminded again how lucky I am to have the family I have.

I'm SO grateful my family "never once have insisted that I should be doing things differently or that I am wrong in my new beliefs. They don’t cast judgments on me. They don’t place themselves on some pedestal. They don’t leave the room if I talk about my current life or lifestyle. They don’t roll their eyes. They don’t grunt and groan. They don’t “bite their lip” and “put up with me” until I’m gone. They don’t gossip about me. They don’t do any of that.

They don’t need to. They understand that to do any of that would go against what they are working to achieve within their religions. They understand that happiness doesn’t come from such things. And they understand that love will always prevail." (quoting SDL)

I don't have much to add to what he said. Just feeling overwhelmed with gratitude.

  1. That's just that beauty that happens.

    So grateful you have the family you DO. They may have their own process they take that is really the antithesis of what one might presume, but clearly THEY LOVE YOU.

    I'm so glad to know that you see and feel this through and through.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Be well. :)
