There are a lot of families that are not close with each other. That makes me sad. My family has always been close. My parents and my family get along great. I usually talk to either mom or dad at least once a day. With the exception of this crazy past few months, we always have dinner together at least once a week as well.
I am thankful for my parents! Thankful for how they raised me and for the close relationship we still have today.
