But then, this morning, I got up and had so much fun playing with my baby girl. I bathed her and put her down for a nap as the boys rushed around getting ready for the Turkey Bowl. And it really got me thinking. What I'm grateful for the most, out of anything, is my family. So I'm erasing my list, and making a new one. It's shorter, but better.
I'm grateful for Sam, for his work ethic, for his kindness, and for encouraging me in every single thing I want to do. He takes the baby during church and does the dishes every night, and I'm grateful for his service and his love.
I'm grateful for Jason, for his great attitude and for how hard he's been working at school this year. I'm grateful for his boundless creativity and imagination, and for how deeply he thinks about important things.
I'm grateful for Claire. I'm grateful that she's such a happy baby and that she makes people happy wherever we go. I'm grateful that she's a good sleeper and a good eater. It's weird how it feels like she was always a part of this family, how she filled a little spot in our family dynamic that makes us all a little kinder and a little happier.
There is so much to be glad about.
What are you thankful for the most?
