Pete's nametagNearly every day I find some reason to be thankful for our blended family. Today’s reminder came in the form of this picture I found as part of a growing collection in my iPhoto library. I took it of our son Pete’s nametag that he wore at a Thanksgiving service at Bauman Auditorium in 2004. Everyone was asked to answer a question to be used in the let’s-get-to-know-
each-other element of the service. Pete answered “Where do you fit in your family’s birth order?”

We never try to forget what was; in fact we do what we can to honor and remember our original families. And whenever possible, we celebrate who we are now–an uncommonly good blended family.
