You may look at these images and see a relatively well-dressed, happy family, smiling and playing in front of the camera.
There’s so much more to the story.
I see evidence of God’s goodness, faithfulness, and mercy. I see restoration and trust and health and second chances. I see forgiveness and protection. I see hard conversations, not shying away from darkness, pulling one another up from the depths and into the light over and over again. The six (six!) of us are worth it times one thousand. We were worth fighting for, we always will be.
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving from the McGihon Family!
