noun. a mixture, esp. of heterogeneous elements; hodgepodge; jumble.

adjective. archaic.

mixed; mingled.

We had family over tonight. There was laughter an d many other strange noises as we played games, made jokes, ate too much and just enjoyed life for a few hours. It was so nice and normal and wonderfully imperfect and it felt like home. Sometimes I feel like my body just can't contain the love I have for this amazing person who calls me his own. But even more recently, I am amazed at how strongly I can love a group of human beings whom I have not known for very long. I think it all comes from beautiful words spoken in sacred walls, crazy gatherings, a tender word, and lots of hugs, pats on the backs, smiles, discussions about the scriptures, and just the love that comes from a family. Perhaps I love them so much because they all helped form the one person who I need to keep breathing, to see the brighter side of things, and to help me fall asleep at night. All I know is that I do; and I do so much that it almost drowns me in the best kind of happiness and love I have ever known. I have always had a family who loves me. My gratitude is beyond words that I am blessed enough to have two. I am so proud to be a Medley.
