Grateful is a word that has been a BIG part of my vocabulary lately. While having lunch with my husband the other day, I struggled to put into words everything that I am so thankful for. I even had a hard time creating a Facebook posting that could accurately describe why my heart is so full these days. I still don’t think that I have the right words to say what I’ve been feeling lately, but I think Five For Friday by Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching is a good way to share just a few of the things I am so blessed by.
I am lucky to live close to my parents, sister and niece. I get to see them all the time. We have holidays together and even just the occasional Sunday night dinner or watching a football game. They are hilarious, silly and so supportive! My mom, dad and even my niece sometimes volunteer at my school. My sister supports lots of charitable organizations through her work, including providing much needed school supplies to kids in need at my school. The picture above is from the MS Walk in Denver 2 years ago when my sister was one of the top 100 fundraisers!
These guys make my house a home. They are all getting pretty old, but they snuggle when snuggles are needed. They make us laugh with their silly antics. They keep my feet warm on a chilly night and they love us unconditionally. I am so grateful for all three of them!
