Thankful: one.

Often, people ask me if I miss my parents, siblings and extended family living so far away from them. I think the assumption is that since I moved across the country, I must have been trying to escape them. But, no. Not at all. I miss my family every day. I absolutely adore them. And, I often find myself wavering between being so content here with my awesome husband and kids, and just wanting to teleport everyone to the same place. But, I'm working on contentment and joy, so I am just going to focus on how thankful I am. Thankful for all of these people, who I only see occasionally, but are so dear to me:
I am so thankful that when we were in Indiana, we got to eat, drink, and be merry at two family parties. I am thankful that I got to chat with my cousins about what's going on in their lives. I am so thankful that Griffin and Diego played happily with their cousins. And, I am incredibly thankful for the time to just be with my parents and siblings--though we really missed Duke! Thanks for all the love and joy, family!
