I was once told that if you have a good family, you win’s life lottery. As someone who participated in the mega-million lottery draw two weeks ago in an office-pool, I know the odds of winning a lottery are slim-to-none. I in no way deserve the parents who created & raised me, I couldn’t have chosen better siblings to be my best friends, better aunts to support me through my first-steps of being an adult in Atlanta, better grandparents who love & pray for me hourly, better cousins to laugh & get in trouble with. My family is simply the gift God gave to me, by no effort of my own. Everyday now, I leave work and chill with my cousins & aunts. I don’t know anyone else in this new city, but honestly right now I am completely content with my biologicals. I don’t know why I am so blessed, but I sure am thankful. Being with my family feels like taking a nap with my eyes open. I really needed this weekend in Charleston to unwind and just be with the Bakers.And no one knows me better than my little sister. Being with my sister, Kristen, is effortless. I was stressing about finances, plans and timing and like always she simple calms me down, “Kat, it’ll be fine. God will work that out.” As a girl who’s never known what she wanted to do with her life, as the hardest worker I know, as a girl who just simply loves despite everything, as a person whose has many commited covenant-friendships, as a girl who does most of the listening but little talking, I can believe her words. Her simple words always mean the most to me.
Here’s to family also being your best friend.
