We know that family is hard, often every day, but gosh, it’s good too. It’s really, really good.

And there’s no untangling the good from the hard – they’re just stuck together, at least as long as we’re living these earthly lives. But so much of the hard is exactly what makes the good all that much sweeter, and teaches us to love so much better and more deeply. Because nothing highly treasured ever comes easily. No, it’s the sacrifice that love and life together requires, and the denial of self and the endless work of it all that makes this whole thing we call family as beautiful, wonderful, and valuable as it really is.

What is love when it’s easy? Well, nothing nearly as incredible as it is when it’s hard.

P.S. I do believe that tight hugs around the neck from tiny little arms are one of the sweetest experiences life has to offer.
