Positive of the day: FAMILY

Today, my family (brothers -1, sister, sisters- and brother-in-law, and niece) met up for dinner! Coming from a family of eight children, there was never a dull moment–ever! As we sat and reminisced about the crap that happened over the years, we laughed a lot! I think about how we reacted back then when it was real time and my Lord, we thought the world was crashing over silly stuff!

My lesson learned is breathe and take it all in! Our actions today will be looked at later as an over-reaction. Truth is, family is all that matters. Now, define family! Family are those that come into our life, blood or not, and love us anyway! They laugh at you and with you, but they also cry for you and with you! They are there for you in the middle of the night, and somehow, manage to have just enough to help you out.

Family will come and go throughout our time but they will reside forever in our hearts!! I am blessed!! πŸ˜˜β€οΈπŸŒˆπŸ•ŠπŸ·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™

My name is Christina Trueblood. I am married and live in Central Illinois and am the mother of two, a daughter and son. Unfortunately, I lost my son in August 2017 in a single vehicle truck accident a couple of miles from our home. He was 24. I have documented some of my story on Facebook over this first year and have been encouraged to start a blog. I hope to help other families who have gone through loss and struggle to make any sense of it. My faith has kept me going and I believe one day, we will meet those loved ones we have lost again and it will be as if no time has passed. Until then, I want to honor their lives and know they left a mark on my life! Please follow me and share your stories.
