I love family gatherings. Especially when those gatherings take place around food.
Do you remember in grade school when our teachers all instructed us to announce something we were thankful for? My dad did something similar today. Except that he challenged us to think of something that we should be thankful for, but haven’t been. Luckily, he didn’t make us say it out loud. I think we all take very special things for granted; sometimes it is very easy to do so. Let us not allow ourselves to be embarrassed by what we neglect to be thankful for. Love your lives. Love the people in them.
