Daily Thanks: T-Day Minus 5, 4, 3

This "thanks" gets three days because it's for:

My Family

For those of you who've been around here for awhile, you know that's a hard one for me to write.  It's not that I don't love my family, but we've definitely had a rough couple of years.  It's hard to be connected with people who have a belief system that won't let them support one of their own.  But I gotta say, as I remember our past together, we truly have had some lovely times and I know they'd never turn me out if I needed help.  If anything, some of the things that have happened between us have helped me to be a more open, caring person.

At least I hope so. 

T-Day Minus 5, 4, 3:  I am thankful for my family.
