I've recently learned that some of my dis-functional family is actually behind me in some of my thinking and my decisions and that's the part of my family that shares no blood with me. I'm very thankful for them especially since I've always felt like the outsider in both sides of my family.
I've also learned that I have a few real friends behind me that care for me and want good things for me. And I am thankful for them as well.
I've spent a lot of my life thinking that I was alone and that no one understood or cared, but this past week or two has really proven that I'm not alone and I do have people that will stand behind me. Which makes me cry, but in a happy, sort of relieved way :)
