I had a great weekend! I went to Top Gun in the Park, a birthday party, a shower, and an anniversary dinner! It was busy and intensely fun. It got me to thinking about how fortunate I am to be in the family I’m in and to come from the family I come from. The Idonije’s and the Okwumabua’s have combined to make ‘us’. Last week was my four-year wedding anniversary and with the ladies up and coming, it hit me that I am at the grass-roots stage of growing ‘us’.
My husband and I come from families that believe that family is first. Family is the most important because they are all you really have. I know that no matter what, I have them in my corner, and something about that fact gives me confidence for days…
Family support is the secret weapon to success, in my eyes, and it is the only reason I am where I am and why I am the way that I am. The fact that no matter how many awesome (and by awesome I actually mean stupid) mistakes I have and am going to make, we can always work things out. I may not always agree with the way that my family might deal with things and I may not always like their advice or opinions but they are the family I have and I will honor them forever because I know that they will and are always there for me. I can only hope that I can give my ladies the same secret weapon I have… I’m working on it…hard.
