Our lives have been very blessed of late.  I don't know if it's just the fact that I am noticing the blessings more, or if they have been there the whole time and I'm just waking up to them.  I just am seeing the blessings of family in my life.

A friend and I were talking about the importance of family in a person's life. How having a family that is there for you and sticks together through thick and thin is one of the greatest things that someone can have in there life.  I've noticed these blessings in my life.  I am so grateful for parents and my husband's parents who have set examples for us.  We are blessed.
