Last year around this time, I wrote my 31 Days in the Life series and it was a pretty popular bunch of posts. I still struggle with posting here (at RoseAtwater.com) regularly and struggle even more with what to write about, so I thought maybe another 30 days of solid writing would help.
I actually thought I’d put this “30 days thing” off til Spring because I have a lot going on right now with Rose Bakes and family and cake business… but then a few friends on Facebook started the 30 Days of Thanks posts and I had an idea… I would do the 30 Days of Thanks – but write posts here instead of just one-liners on Facebook.
Well, they may end up being one-liners here, but I’ll try for more! 😉
Anywho – today I’m thankful for time with family. After church today, my immediate family (parents, siblings and their kids) went out to lunch. Or most of us did, my sister and her kiddos weren’t able to go. 🙁
I had just talked about our family getting together with one of my brothers a few days ago and I realized as we sat there that I really want us to do it more often… it’s been way too long since we all got together… maybe even months?! That’s all of us up top last Christmas… 23 in total (there will be 24 soon…) and wow… I love them SO MUCH!
We live so close together and all go to church together… I think that maybe we take it for granted and don’t get together enough outside of church. And I miss it.
So today – I’m thankful for them. Thankful that we’re all close. That we live close. And that even though it’s not often enough, we can all get-together and hang out and laugh and love!
