While it HAS been great living here (hi mom, hi dad), it's also been eye-opening to live with a middle schooler (my youngest sister). Ahem. I won't say more than that. However, if you don't know what this is like, get ready. Be prepared. Be very, very afraid. And have a good therapist lined up. And a lot of wine. (I kid! Sort of! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!).
And I can't wait to make lots of delicious meals in this cute kitchen (not usually a huge fan of darker cabinets but HELLO! Check out these original oak beauties!). We are so blessed to have found a home that will serve our family so well.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melodie Beattie
