We have a common bond which unites us and makes us "kin by marriage". The love of our children and the bond created by marriage, makes us kin in my eyes. My other two children are already married and I consider their inlaws family also.
We have an instant common bond that creates a kinship like no other. AND when grands begin to be added to the mix--it only grows stronger. As we watch them unite and live life together, we share the bond history cannot deny. We are all players in the grand production of their life together.
Throughtout my life, a beautiful tapestry has been woven over the years of family and family by marriage and friends. Ever changing--one thing is always constant, the tapestry is a work in progress.
We all have our own unique tapestries. No two are alike, but all are wonders to behold. New colors and designs are added over the years--some colors fall from the weave and new ones are added. NOTHING though can take away from the great beauty of the tapestry and its design. A design ordained by God Himself--NOT ONE THING could be any more magnificent.
