Yes, Tom's family is unusual. They have no boundaries, like everyone is part of the "collective". Margaret (his mom) was the leader, whatever she wanted is what was done. No one seems to be able to think for themselves. Luckily for me, my husband has never fit their mold. And something interesting, he found out he had a 1/2 sister (they share father's) a few years ago. She is 13 years younger than Tom but we met her this summer and the two of them are so alike it's uncanny. They like the same type of movies, activities, and talents and they share the same sense of humor (something I've never understood). He finally found someone he could connect with in his family!
Thanks for the continued prayers. It looks like the funeral may be on Monday - then I think we're going out-of-town for a couple days to recuperate! 3 days ago
And thank you for the spark goodie, very thoughtful of you. Going to be a quiet anniversary this year but as soon as things settle down we're going to spent a couple days out of town. Can't wait - we're going to need it! 8 days ago
