I’m grateful for life and love & family

I am grateful to finally meet my father’s side of the family after 32 years. I have so many aunts, uncles, cousins…..Seeing my daughter with her grandfather for the first time…..priceless!

Grateful that a mishap on the highway tied up traffic badly and that allowed me a chance to relax and have dinner with family.

I’m thankful for the Sunday, time to visit families and spend all day with them, we end up really tired but really worth it.

I’m happy I got to steal away for a few days while my husband watched all three kids.

I’m happy for lovely afternoons making crafts: homemade playdough with food coloring, glitter, and smelly oils in painted spaghetti sauce jars for tomorrow’s birthday party.

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week. 

To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or at the bottom of this post.  Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.
