I'm so grateful to have such a close knit family. I'm grateful to be friends with my brother and sister-in-law. I'm grateful to be so close to my parents. I'm grateful to have a husband that fits right in between the Jeep talk and the inappropriate jokes. I'm grateful that my family has truly become his family. And I'm grateful to know that we will all enjoy kicking off the holiday together this afternoon. (I'm also grateful for the family quote book that will surely get some more entries today!)
What is your favorite thing about the holidays, no matter which holiday you may celebrate? Which traditions do you look forward to each year? What inspires your gratitude during this season of giving?
May today warm you with all the blessings love has to offer. May you find joy in whatever you do today. Have a beautiful day!
For those who do not resonate with this holiday or do not have family close by, know you are not alone. Here in KC the churches are opening their doors for potlucks. Also, Chinese restaurants are almost always open this time of year for a great way to meet new people and socialize.
