My Mom always says everything happens for a reason. I disagree and say sometimes things happen for a reason. Some things that happen, I just don't see a reason for, no matter how hard I try.
But, this is one of those things I do believe happened for a reason. Our family.
I met Tom's brothers not long before his Mom passed away. And while I'll never understand why she had do go, I do understand why I am here with them now. Because we were meant to be a family.
My family and Tom's family have become one family. It would be so weird to me,now, not to eat a holiday meal with them. Yet, 5 years ago, if you told me I would be having dinner with my Mom and her Man, My husband Tom, and his brothers....I would have thought you were drinking. Yet today, I can't picture anything different.
I guess that's because things do happen for a reason, sometimes.
