Seven Days of Gratitude - Day 1

I've decided to do a little week-long series leading up to Thanksgiving on gratitude.  There is so much negativity and sad news in the world at large right now that I think it will help me to reflect on the positive parts of life.

No posts about gratitude would be complete without mentioning my wonderful family.  I am truly grateful for them.

From my wonderful parents who are such a help with our boys (watching them two days a week while we both work) and who do so many other things for us to my sweet babies - I have a wonderful, strong family unit.

Our extended family is spread over the globe so I don't get to see them as much as I would like, but each one is so special to me.

I believe that family is one of the greatest gifts God gives us, and how we deal with our family is one of our greatest responsibilities to God.  Strong families make strong communities. My family is such a blessing.  

Speaking of family blessings, Nathaniel occasionally sleeps through the night now.  That might be the biggest blessing of all. (I kid.... I kid.)


  1. Such a wonderful family you have, I'm so happy for you!

    If only I could have had a family perhaps my life would have been different.

    May you and your family have a joyful Thanksgiving?

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving as well.
