Today I have been thinking a lot about families. I love my family, both Bingham and Baum! I feel so blessed to have all of these people in my life. I know I have grown in many ways because of all of their influences. I have great examples of strong women and loving, compassionate mothers, of faithful/dedicated husbands and loving fathers. Our family really has it all. As much as I love my family that lives outside of my home and miss them daily, I know what gets me through the day is the family that is right here in my home.
When life is as unpredictable and crazy as it is right now, and sometimes I think I should be a complete mess. I feel at peace in my situation. Sure I get anxious sometimes at the thought of the unknown, everyone does. I always have a constant reminder that everything will be right, because I will always have my family. We live in Minnesota right now and to be honest I wasn't too happy to come out here, but I love it. I really do, I would even say I sometimes have mixed feeling about leaving here someday. Yes I hate being away from loves ones and miss them terribly, but I have my little family of three. We're small but we have each other.
My sweet Donny is my best friend. We laugh and giggle together, have constant inside jokes and most of the time know what the other will say or is thinking. We have cried together and found comfort in each others company. I know now that it doesn't matter where we live or how much money we have or how nice our house or car is. We are happy with nothing, (I know this because we have nothing now and we are happy). Happy to be a little family.
Little Tate is a blessing in our family. Sometimes I can't remember life without him. He is like sunshine in a bottle. When I feel down, that little smile warms my soul. Family really can be together forever........and I'm counting on it!!!
