When I got home from the shop on Thursday evening, Mom and the girls were in the dining room playing Junior Trivial Pursuit and having a blast. Then I took a closer look. The girls had on their play makeup and everyone had painted fingernails. I am grateful that my mom, despite being directionally challenged, loves to play with her granddaughters and is building memories for them.
I am grateful for all those who have served our country: my husband, father, father-in-law, step father-in-law and nephew specifically.
I am grateful for local stores where they know your name and what you like.
I am grateful for the friends and family I have.
I am aware that I am often not grateful enough.
I am grateful that I finally finished the first repeat on the Ethereal Grace stole for my niece for her wedding.
Have you taken a minute to be grateful for something or, more importantly, someone, today?
