… the reality is, and will always be, that no fence can keep in someone who does not want to be kept any more than it can stop death from showing up at the door when the time comes.
I sometimes get asked what is a blended family enthusiast, or what makes me one. Well here is my why….
Mustering up the courage to be brave doesn’t mean that the outcome will be just as we anticipate it to go. Being brave however DOES change you! What is it that is waiting on you to be brave? Who NEEDS to see you be brave? In what way can lives be changed by you daring to be brave? I’ll share how mines works out if I can only have the courage.
If you are in or may potentially be in a blended family, I strongly encourage you to find what works for each member of your family and do just that. Blending a family takes a great deal of intentionality, patience, and love. There is no one recipe that will make the family merge and the ingredients fit, so that you have an instant family that works.
