Family is hard, family is eclectic, family is lovely.
This group of people is pulled together often by nothing other than blood. There is a person to represent so many different viewpoints in this room.
There are marines, stay at home moms, kindergardeners, engineers, mechanics, therapists, and environmentalists. Members of the NRA, pacifists, libertarians, republicans, democrats, and green party members. Transgender, cis, bi and straight. We even have a doomsday prepper with dementia.
And I’m convinced that if this group can sit down to a meal and everyone walk away smiling and laughing and hugging, there’s a little but of hope for humanity.
