Happy Holidays! Few things that I am thankful for today.
- My brothers. Last night I stayed at my moms house so I could get an early start on making breakfast this morning. I ended up staying up late watching some TV. My younger brother Alex came home and urged me to change the TV from a documentary on lions to Family Guy. He then proceeded to bring in some graham crackers and a big ass glass of milk. I of course was envious and retrieved my own set of crackers and milk. And there we sat. Eating graham crackers and milk watching cartoons. I realized that we had most likely done this many times before in our lives. I was so thankful for that moment. Very simple but very valuable as well. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if Nate was there to join us. Luckily I get to spend the day with both of them today.
- Good neighbors. Last night my moms neighbor from across the street brought us some cookies. They also have children our age, and now plenty of grand children. It warms my heart to know that there are still good people out there who are willing to interact and be “neighborly” 🙂 I wish them the very best of holidays and I hope it is filled with only love.
- A sense of order. I appreciate the fact that I live the kind of life where I want things to be in their place. I’m going to clean up my moms house before breakfast and it’s going to be so therapeutic. We will eat and enjoy each others company in a place of order.
