Grateful for Family

I think Kurt and I are the luckiest people in the world with the love and support we are given by our family. My parents, Kurt's parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandparents. We were talking the other day in the car and were just amazed at how much our family loves us. We were feeling sad for homeless people and knew that our families would never let anything like that happen to us, our support system is so strong. We are surrounded by incredible examples, people that I'm proud to say are family.

I'm thankful for my parents who have continually loved me despite my crazy youth where I know I didn't treat them the best! I'm thankful I know I can call them with whatever problem I have and they will give me advice and prayers and love. I know I keep coming back to this summer and the hardships we faced, but I knew every single one of my aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, or cousins were praying and thinking about Kurt and I. I felt the love and support from across the country. I'm thankful for my brothers and sisters and in-laws...we all have so much fun together when we can get together. It's hard being in Utah while most are on the East coast and a sister on the west coast. I wish I could just hop over to my sisters house for dinner or stop in at my brothers house just to say hi. But the times when we are together, we talk and laugh and just have a great time.

I'm thankful for Kurt's family. It's hard for me to even write about Kurt's family because I really feel like we have grown together so much, but have also lost so much. But I know that I'm grateful for the love, support, and togetherness we all have. I'm grateful for the time we are able to spend together and the fun we have. It's crazy times when all the Youngberg's get together, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm grateful for each and every one of Kurt's brothers and sisters and in-laws. They each bring their own unique and beautiful component to our family.

So thank you to all our family, thank you for loving us no matter what. Thank you for everything you do for us, I don't feel like I can say thank you enough.
