Chosen Family

Today was much like any other Saturday.  I worked for awhile and then ate dinner with my family.  But, there were a few differences.

Normally, when I say we ate dinner with family I mean our immediate family… as in DH’s parents and sister, or mine.  Today, we drove across the Bay to eat with the Best Man at our wedding and his wife and kids.  In many ways they are like family to us.  Their kids call us Auntie and Uncle, and we love them a lot.

Also, I’ve been watching the video of my BFF giving birth to my new nephew.  She had a scheduled cesarean yesterday because my nephew was breach and they couldn’t turn him.  I’m not one to be in delivery rooms or crowd people right after they give birth so I’ll be bringing them dinner on Friday after they’ve had a chance to be home for a bit.

So, today was about a different kind of family.  The kind that you choose to have in your life as friends and love as family.
