When you become part of a family, it’s easy to feel like you’ve found your place. If you’ve recently become engaged, or are getting married, take the time to thank your family members for their kind words and support. Here are some ideas of what you might include in these kinds of messages.
#1 I used to think my family was the center of my universe. I realize now that it is your family that holds that position. Thank you for making me a part of your world!
#2 Thank you for welcoming me into your home and sharing your traditions with me. These are memories I will cherish forever. This is not only a new chapter in my life, but a new book!
#3 There truly ain’t no place like home. There’s no one else I’d rather be at home with than you all. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being an amazing family and becoming mine as well!
#4 In this crazy world we live in, it seems as though there is never enough time to spend with those who matter most – our family. With you, I feel like I am home again. Thank you for making me feel so welcome!
#5 I was hoping the love I had for my own family would be enough to fill this gaping hole in my heart. But it wasn’t until you welcomed me into your family with open arms that the void started to disappear. You are more than just my new family; you are my home now and always will be!
#6 You have given me a completely new perspective on what it means to have a loving, caring and supportive family. Thank you for welcoming me into your beautiful home and sharing all of yours traditions with me, no matter how big or small they might be! You truly made this an unforgettable experience for me! Before leaving on my exchange, I had no idea how much I needed a new family to call my own. You have filled that void with your love and support. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your family!
#7 I will never forget the first time we met – it was on a bus headed towards a new adventure in an unfamiliar place. Little did I know, soon after our paths would cross again and you all would become my very own family! Thank you for welcoming me into your lives and loving me like one of your own.
#8 Your home is more than just four walls where people sleep at night; It’s made up of the memories created during those fleeting moments together as a family that make life worth. That definition makes your house the best in the world because you all make my home feel like one I can’t wait to return to!
