Today I am thankful for the Herner family. They have been family since I was born. I am thankful for all of the vacations we have spent together, all of the Sunday night dinners we have had, all of the “porch sitting” times we spent together in the summer, all of the Christmas Eves we have celebrated together, I could go on and on…
I am thankful for Sue, who is another mother to me and Doug who is another father to me. I am thankful that I can walk into their house, no matter the time, without knocking like it is my house. I am thankful to know that they would do anything for me, and all I have to do is ask.
I am thankful for the big brother example DJ has always been to me. I am thankful for Holly and her ability to always cheer up any situation (as well as how she used to curl my bangs when I was a kid and spray them with Rave Hair Spray so they would be just like hers). When I was a kid I used to love when DJ and Holly both let me hang out with their friends because everything they did was always so cool to me.
I am thankful that although we may not be blood, they will ALWAYS be family.
