a blended family

As I lay in the hospital bed, I am surrounded by family. My mother on one side of me and my step-mother on the other. My father is sitting in a chair beside my husband whispering as they hold this new bundle of joy that has just entered our lives. My sister stands over them with a smile.

I look around. I feel peace. I feel love. My blended family is beautiful. I would not ask for anything more. People say divorce is difficult. Sure it is. I remember. It wasn't all bad either though. I have more siblings, more parents and most of all I have lots of people to love.
Love makes the world go 'round.
