Family Support/ Mentorship (happy birthday, Ted)

It’s WHEEL WEDNESDAY and I am picking 2 strengths to write about today…. There are FAMILY SUPPORT and MENTORS on highlight this week because I celebrated, what would have been, my dad’s birthday this past Monday.

Not my biological father, but my dad…. My chosen family who, if you are in a place of having chosen family, you understand the value of that bond. While some might believe that you are fortunate if you don’t find yourself in a position to have an opening like that in your life, I will tell you I was GRACED with a man who chose me every day, and I chose him. I continue to choose him and the values that he taught me, no matter how hard it is to accept that challenge.
