Today, I’m thankful for family. It is Christmas Eve. I have family around me. I’m thankful. My recently married daughter and son-in-law will be spending the evening with us. Tomorrow will be the first Christmas day my daughter will not be with us. So, I’m very thankful she is making the effort to spend time with us today. It is a new stage in life. It has some joys and some tears. But, she is still close enough to come buy. I’m thankful.
My goal is to be present in the family time. I want to be with my family, not miles away in my own addicted head. I want to listen, talk, play games, have fun, support, notice, be present.
Glorious Father, thank You for my family. We are all healthy. We all have plenty to eat today. We all have time to spend together today. Thank You. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
