Both are true for me.
What is it about stuffing yourself until you are sick that is so much fun?
I don't know, but I love this time of year we have to get together with our extended family & talk about the things we are grateful for.
It is a time to reflect & I appreciate it.
I feel like sometimes I get in the whirls & goings of daily life that I forget to pause & be grateful for the little things.
Right now I feel like my gratitude is overflowing.
I have had such a great year.
I feel so blessed for the opportunities & struggles 2010 has brought to me.
This year, my Mom made a gratitude board for us to write any & every thing we are grateful for.It helped me reflect on the everyday things for which I am most grateful.
Everything thing from Cafe Rio, to BYU, to music, to people against Qubo, to the gospel were listed.
Mostly though, I just kept going back to how grateful I am for my wonderful family.
The more I am around them, the more I realize how truly selfless my parents are & how much they love me & my siblings.
I am really so blessed.
