Reverb 10: December 14: Appreciate

December 14 – Appreciate.

What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?

Time with family tops my list of things to be grateful for. This is probably a fairly standard answer, but that doesn't make it any less true or sincere. Just taking time to sit in the floor and build towers and castles with Naomi and Parker. Sitting on the couch gabbing with Nathan over the plot of his newest book. Having a movie night with Mr. G. Going to visit my sister and having it being something special because I don't get to see her every day anymore. Special grandma and grandpa snuggles scattered between all the kids....

All of these things make me grateful to be alive and I think I have expressed gratitude in the best way imaginable...by making time. No matter what I can master in this life, I won't get time back. Money can make me look younger, allow me to work less or make my free time more exciting...but no matter what we are bound by time. Choosing to spend my time in a more well-rounded manner is a constant battle but one worth fighting!
