My gratitude journal entry for today is very simple:
1. My mom.
2. My dad.
3. The ginormous pot of spaghetti sauce with meatballs and sausage sitting in my fridge, courtesy of a mother-daughter afternoon of cooking (anyone up for some pasta this weekend!?).
4. The generosity of my parents. It never ceases to amaze me how thoughtful and giving they both are. Also, that they continue to impress upon my sister and I the importance of exercising kindness to others. They are wonderful role models.
5. The knowledge that, no matter what we may go through, I have never doubted nor will ever need to doubt that my parents would go to the end of the earth and back again for me. I hope they know I would do the same for them, too.
