Let’s keep it real. Blended families are tough. Sometimes, love is difficult. His, mine, and ours is like being caught in a hurricane in the middle of the Atlantic in August; yet, just when the vessel is about to break and become part of the wreckage, peace calms the storm. There is no handbook good enough, no counseling that prepares the heart, and no written words of knowledge that expresses the daily grime of life in a blended home. Keeping it real, it is brutal and harsh at times, and during others, it is like a gentle mist on the most humid day in the summer, very rewarding. Every day, life is unexpected. There are no controlled variables. It repeats itself; yet, with new outcomes and circumstances. Let’s get started and have a walk down the corridors of the heart as we share in life’s most challenging adventure-blended homes.
