Modern, Blended Family Quotes

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.”  — Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

This is so pertinent to our blended family.  We ARE one family, yet we are growing up under roofs that are not always the same.  This quote makes me confident in the choice we have made for  our blended family life!

Tuesday Tip # 11

In our blended family, we maintain two households in separate states.  We are always looking for ways to make each of our homes a comfortable and welcoming place for every member of the blended family.  Displaying family photos of all of us together (on vacations, of the wedding, or just goofing around on the weekends) in both homes gives a visual reminder to everyone that we are all a family despite not being together every day.
