This year my family had an intimate dinner at mom and dads place. It was special to give back to them what was given to us beyond holidays past. -A home of love, music, and laughter. Of course now and then their may have been a Grench or glitch, but the strength of love through faith has blessed us even till this present day. Everyday of life is a gift. Let's be grateful each day for family and friends. While our biological families are not necessarily chosen by us and things may not be as we'd like, we can appreciate the good times that made us glad. My mom's favorite scripture is Phillipians 4. -'Whatsoever things are lovely think on those things.' Be blessed everyday for the gift of life shared with family and friends.
