I am grateful for my wife, who loves me unconditionally… no matter WHAT!

I am grateful that my husband forgave me after I totally lost it (in front of our daughter) last week. I am grateful that losing my cool helped me realize I need to re-balance my responsibilities to my disabled mother, my husband and daughter, my work, my volunteering, and myself!

I am grateful for attention, emotion, intention, & action!

I’m so grateful that my son no longer needs his glasses. He’s 11 and he started wearing them at age five.

I am grateful that my husband is such an involved father of our two children. I am grateful for the sound of my daughter’s laughter as we jump on the bed together before her bath. I am grateful that my Dad is coming over tomorrow morning so I can go to the gym.

I’m so happy my sister is here for a visit!
