Superhero Shout-Out: My Family

Today’s Superhero Shout-Out goes to my extended family.

This is not a generic thank you. There will be some specifics in other Superhero Shout-Outs, but right now it’s important for me to thank the whole group.

My mom always says that family is the most important thing, that we will always be there for each other. It was true when I was a child, and continued when I was in college. They were there for me when I grew up, and supportive when I was diagnosed with depression, then bipolar.

And when I was in the hospital the first time, I was so scared that my brother and sister would be freaked out & have less attention, and I also I feared that wouldn’t be allowed to hang out with my younger cousins. But everyone was super-supportive. If they had to think about it first, I never knew.

This weekend one of my cousins got married, and I was so happy for her and her husband – they’re wonderful. I was also really thankful to have been part of her life for all of her life. I was never cut out. In fact, I was invited over, especially included. I have great relationships with my parents, my brother and sister. My aunts and uncles on both sides didn’t pull away, nor did my cousins. I’ve always loved all of them, and they love me, bipolar swings and all.

So – Congratulations, cousin! I’ve loved watching you grow up, and loved attending your wedding with our families. I can’t wait to see what happens in the future, for all of us.

I appreciate that I have a huge family in my Team. Thank you! I love you all.
