I came into the family as a stranger, not knowing what to expect from such a large group of people. At first, I felt afraid and lost because I don’t have a huge family or a very close one. I have always been an outsider looking in on my family. But you guys welcome me in with open arm, so thank you for welcoming me into your family.
I know I’m not perfect and I say all the wrong things all the time. But for some reason, you guys accept my flaws and are just here for me. I still have no idea how or why you guys are so accepting of me.
But you are even to this day, I know I’m a part of your family. Not only do you accept me, but I know if I need anything you’ll be there in a heartbeat with a hug and wine ready. I can talk to all of you about anything. I have cried numerous times and never once felt unloved. It just loves all around 24/7.
I never expected to fall in love with my boyfriend’s family as well. But the reality is I have and love each and every one of you for numerous of reasons. Some are the same while others are different. No matter what the reasoning is I care so much about all of you.
All of you are so much more than just my boyfriend’s family. You’re my family as well as friends. I couldn’t have asked for a better family to have falling into along with the man of my dreams.
Thank you for letting me into your family.
I seriously can’t thank you all enough for this because it’s nothing but the truth. I will never forget walking into my first thanksgiving with you guys and feeling the love in the air. I meant all of you one by one. At first, I was feeling anxious but that’s normal when you’re meeting new people. I quickly became calm down because I felt as if I belonged here. I never felt like that with my own family, so honestly the feeling felt strange and awkward at first. Now, I love the feeling I know what I family should feel like because of each and every one of you.
Also, a special thank you for my boyfriend’s immediate family for letting me live with you during my summer break in college and after graduating as well. I’m so blessed to be able to have a place to stay and feel welcome enough to call me home as well. I enjoyed all the talks and seeing all your smiling faces everyday. I also fell in love with the small town the house was in and hoping one day I can have move back to raise my daughter.
Thank you for becoming some of my favorite people.
I never thought a boyfriend’s family could grown on me so much. You have become my friends and my family which still blows my mind. I never knew this was possible, especially after messing up deeply with my ex and his family. Now, I know exactly what I have been missing all my life and never want to let it go. You all shown me how to be the person I am today by your advice, your love, and so much more.
Thank you for wiping away my tears.
I may some like a strong woman to everyone in my life, but you all know the truth. I’m an emotional wreck. I have cried in front the major of these last few years for various of reasons. Every time, you brought me back to reality with a hug, help word choices,telling me how much you care about me or/and wiping my tears away. My life has bee far from easy these last few years without my mom, but I’m okay because I know if I break down I had the best people in the world to lift me up.
Thank you for just everything these last 8 years.
You’re all the best! I love you!
