As corny as it sounds, I've spent a lot of time this weekend thinking about how blessed I am. I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I didn't want stuff. Instead, I'm blessed with people and experiences from the past few days.
- I got to spend lots of time with my two nephews, and marvel at the tall and smart boys they are becoming. - I got to hug and kiss my grandfather, who actually knew my name after a bad spell last week of not knowing anyone. In any case, I am so fortunate to still have both of my maternal grandparents. - I got to participate in a Christmas Day picnic with my nephews and second cousins, complete with a quilt on my aunt's lawn and ice cream sandwiches. - I got to hold my cousin's newborn baby girl. - And to cap it all off, I was flooded with text messages and facebook posts from my friends and Inforoosters.
