Thankful for Family

Today I am thankful for my children.  Though they sometimes make my head spin and cause messes, they are also the two people who keep me going at times when I’d really rather stop. 

 I can’t say that we are perfect in the way we approach things, we definitely fall out of what is considered the “norm.”  Still home is a place where we can all find comfort, joy, and peace. 

 I am thankful for our family, though we are few; we still stick together and help each other.  I also appreciate my extended family.  Those people who are my friends and as close as family, I would not be able to function without them. 

There’s no such thing as loving someone too much.  Take a moment today to let the people in your life know how much they mean to you.  Don’t let the opportunity to say I love you pass you by.

  1. Great post. I am thankful for my children too and we definitely don’t fall into the norm as a family. There are days when dealing with a moody teenager and a nonstop 6 year old can be challenging. I lose it sometimes, just want to be alone, find peace and quiet. But then my son will curl up next to me just because he loves me, or my daughter comes up out of nowhere and gives me a big hug and says “I love you, Mama” and I love them even more.
