What I'm Thankful For -- Day 2
Thanksgiving is in 23 days.
On November 1 I started a daily post in which I list one thing (or set of things) I'm thankful for each day. This way, when the craziness of life occasionally gets me down—and I have no doubt it will—these posts will serve as a terrific reminder of all of the things for which I should be grateful.
I have a terrific family. Even if we haven't (and don't) see eye-to-eye, I'm thankful to have been able to share the goods and bads of life with them, to have their love and support during difficult times, and know I can turn to them when I need it. I'm thankful for my parents, sister and brothers (I consider my brother-in-law to be one of my brothers) and my grandmother, who turned 88 this year. I'm also thankful for my in-laws, who have welcomed me into their family with open arms and tremendous love and support.
I'm also thankful to have the opportunity to watch my two nephews grow into amazingly funny, loving little boys.
Life is better when it's shared with those you love.
