Family is everything

Sometimes I tend to forget that how my family is not the same for all families.
The simplest way to explain it is that our way of thinking is blood is thicker than water.
I can't remember when I first heard that, but it did make a huge impact on my life. And its so true for my family. We have each others back through the good and the bad. If you can't count in your family, then who can you count on?
Family is where you can truly be yourself and not worry if you are making a good impression because they will accept you for who you are and love you no matter what.
That is at least how my family is.
My husband's family is definitely the opposite and it has been a new experience for me and not one I can say I honestly enjoy. I should explain though that his mom is not part of it. She fits right in with my family. Its the rest of his family that I don't get. I mean how can grandparents disown a grandchild with no good explanation?
Maybe this is all on my mind since my mom was just in the hospital for having a stroke and my grandpa is currently in ICU from having a stroke.
I have had an awakening last 48 hours. There is so much I have to be thankful for and so much I need to change.
