Day 1 is about family. Talk about starting with a difficult one. I don’t have contact with my family much. Growing up in an abusive household can have that effect. I never felt part of my family anyway. I try to reconnect with a cousin and a niece, but it is not the same thing than having a family. It is something I long for, and am a bit envious about when I see my friends and their family. But I am a firm believer that friends came become your family. I feel part of the family of my godson, part of the family of my ex-partner and bonus son. So that is what I am thankful for, my chosen family!
