So here is Week 4:
Day 22I am grateful that my parents saved so much from my childhood. A little time spent digging through boxes produces videos like Puff the Magic Dragon and Gumby, allowing me to share my childhood with my daughter.
Day 23Growing up, we almost always ate dinner together as a family. Not just my parents, sister and I, but my grandparents too. No matter what our schedules were, we sat down at the table together. I think that played a large part in our family dynamic. And I am grateful that as an adult, I can still sit down for dinner with my family. I am grateful that Audrey knows that tradition of gathering, and eating and sharing as well.
Day 24I am grateful for the beauty the night sky can hold and for the promise it holds of a beautiful day the next day.
Day 25I am grateful for the opportunity to play. Life is short. It is important to let go of everything else and just have fun every now and then.
Day 26I am grateful to be alive, to feel alive, for every single breath. Because despite our struggles, each breath is a gift to be here and to live this life.
Day 27I am grateful to live where I grew up. I am grateful for the sense of community here and for the connections I have made, past and present.
Day 28I am grateful for the roof over my head, a physical protection from the elements.
As we get closer and closer to Easter, is there anything this week that you are particularly grateful for?
