As I've gotten older, I've realized that it's not a given that family relationships will stay intact. I've heard stories of families that have drifted apart or have been divided by arguments. This realization makes me even more thankful that my family has remained close. Granted, I don't see my family as often as I'd like as we are spread out across the U.S. and have such busy schedule. But that just makes me appreciate the time we spend together even more.

|My younger sister and me (some people think we look like twins!)|
|At the lake with Evie and Charlie|
|My adorable parents, who will celebrate 47 years of marriage next month!|
|My handsome nephew, Matthew, and me.|
What are you thankful for today?
