A few more hours and we will be welcoming a new year.
No year is ever perfect. This year, we lost a cousin so dear to me and I am missing him so terribly. I know it will take us quite a long time to recoup from his untimely passing.
I affirm, nevertheless, that 2014 favored us. Our cup, in fact, overflows and I could not think of anything more apropos than writing my personal gratitude list.
I am thankful for a beautiful home we always look forward to going home to.
I am thankful for my dearest friends.
I am thankful for nieces and nephews, who love my boys as much as my boys love them.
I am thankful for our families.
I am thankful for Joaquin. He is growing to be an insightful, assertive, thoughtful, emphatic not-so-little one.
I am thankful for Pippo – a natural charmer with the heartiest appetite, flair on the dance floor, and perfect comic timing.
Finally, I am most thankful for The Husband. I honor him for the man that he is – a dedicated husband and father, doting son, and generous brother, friend.
How about you? What are you most grateful for this year?
