30 Days of Thanks 18
Today I am thankful to be near my family. I don't take this for granted. I have lived several hours from them, and it was really hard. I am also very aware of the probability that this is not permanent. John's company could move us at any point in time. So, while we are here, I will enjoy and be thankful for every impromptu dinner together, every lunch with my mom, every family birthday party, every shopping trip out with my nieces and sister, and every chance Hope gets to go to my parents' house to spend the night (and watch Dancing With The Stars!) Because while I know that the love will stretch over the miles, it is just so nice to see them so very often.
