. . . I’m so grateful for my family today. With a few moments to myself for contemplation, I realized family had to be the subject of tonight’s blog. And as I wait for my cousin to come pick me up for a slumber party, the clock is a tickin’ – there is no way to list all the reasons I’m grateful for my family! Wisdom, tasty recipes, big hugs, comfy chats, hilariousness, unique genes, a multitude of perspectives, so many favors on this trip, the list goes on and on.
