The Blessing of Family

We try very hard to be able to enjoy dinner together as a family. Last night we were successful! As we ate, I watched as Rachel fed Anna, Zak laughed with his Daddy and Abbey and James carried on a conversation. I felt so blessed to watch my family eating together - enjoying the meal time - together as a family

I had this overwhelming feeling come over me - when I realized I have no idea just how blessed i truly am! My heart was full just being able to be with my family.

(Now, I will try to remember this feeling the next time I catch Zak using toothpaste to paint the bathroom mirror. Yes, toothpaste (an entire tube!) - and yes, the bathroom mirror!

Trust you week is blessed and you are enjoying the joy of family. Thanks for stopping by - I am so glad you did.

Sometimes it is so sweet to just sit back and watch our family members...To enjoy the moments.

Glad you did this and I join you in thankfulness for the families we have been blessed with.

Oooh...the toothpaste on the mirror would have been frustrating...I can surely imagine that.
