Love isn't perfect.Love isn't perfect it isn't a fairytale or a storybook, and it doesn't always come easyLove is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go.It is a short word, easy to spell difficult to define and impossible to live without.Love is work, but most of all, it is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it together.-Unknown This wonderful family is one that God stitched together by hand.  I am so thankful I was able to spend this time with them.  They have become our friends and have truly brightened up this season for not only me but so many others.
