Today, I'm grateful...
1st ...to have an extended family that loves each other so much we are sad when we can't be together for holidays! So lucky not to have the deep-seated feuds others struggle with.
2nd ...for an extra pair of hands around the house when Jason is out of town for a conference. Thanks for making the trip during a busy time, Grandma Sara!
3rd ...to live within easy driving distance of enriching places and activities to help my curious toddler learn and grow.
4th ...to have a warm house to snuggle with my family in.
5th ...for a hidden stash of Halloween candy when the whining just gets a little too intense.
6th ...for new friends, and for old friends who keep calling you even though it's really hard to find time to connect (love you, Bethie!)
7th ...for the freedom to love and celebrate and worship and create and think in ways that many people in the world long for.
8th ...for surprises in the mail.
