Personally, this is something I’m super sensitive about.
I will explain one time that it was she plus 4, PLUS he plus 2 and then along came me.
To be nice, I will honor the need of someone to define the “steps” and “halves” ONE time. I will satisfy their need to tell me that i don’t have any “whole” siblings. ((🤔🤔they seem pretty whole to me)
Then I will graciously explain that these are my sisters and brothers…this is our family…the end. And I will ask with a heart full of seriousness and respect…can you please not use the above lingo again?
This is my original sense of belonging, these are my people and I thank God every day for them.
Also…I have the dearest sister’s sister (my sister) in the entire universe.

I am a brave, worthy, loved by God, truly happy, whimsical, whole and surrendered woman basking in the warmth of God's sunshine....I am also an engaged and trusting Momma with the heart of a child! I am His child.
These truths remain yet I have to remind myself that THESE ARE MY TRUTHS and that means something entirely different to me than when I first was touched by these words.
Then, they were words and now, they have become words with life in them. Words I am doing my damndest to live out every day. I am now a single Momma, my Daddy has gone to Heaven and life looks different every day. None of my life's circumstances have changed the reality of who I am at my core and I think that's a really cool thing!
I am ecstatic to be writing again. I invite you to join me on this journey. I welcome feedback and conversational dialogue and I promise to be write straight from my heart because I that's the language I am most fluent in.
