What's the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it? Family.
This year, over and over, I was reminded how incredibly blessed I am because of my family.
That my husband and I are more in love than ever after 3 years of marriage.
That our son is so amazing and healthy and that we get the awesome privilege of raising him.
That I have in-laws who are so loving and caring and generous, and live five minutes away from us.
I cannot even express how grateful I am that my husband's parents are home for Christmas this year- that his mom is getting her health back. That is a thousand prayers answered.
That I can drive less than hour to see my mom, dad, sister, and my grandmother- who is still so full of life and wit at 86 years old.
That we all get along almost all the time, and all love being together.
And that is how I show my appreciation- time spent together. Meals at a family table, movie nights and zoo visits and beach days, s'mores, bowling, and just sitting in the back yard. I love those times.
