Recently, a friend of mine started a blog called A Year of Thanks, in which she offers a daily post about things for which she is grateful. She wrote a post on children a week or so ago, and the day after the post, the kids and I took a walk to the bay on an incredibly beautiful Saturday. I couldn't help but think about how much gratitude I feel for my children and the circumstances of my life. I am so grateful that I have two wonderful, healthy kids and that I have a great husband and great extended family and that we get to live in such a beautiful place. I have no idea how I got such a good ticket in this world, but I am profoundly grateful.
