How privileged...

I have been thinking recently on how privileged I am. My first thought actually used the word 'lucky' but being that I don't believe in luck I needed to change it to privileged. The thing is, there are SO many things in my life that are more wonderful than I have words to express. My family is amazing, loving, full of little people that are full of energy and sweetness! I have the best family ever...having said that I realize that my family just so happens to be the best family for me...maybe not for everyone but I love them just the same. My parents are incredible, they have given their lives to missions and I, in return, have already had the chance to experience a unique and full life. Not to mention they are generous and loving and godly and fun and so cool and well I will move on as I risk becoming ridiculous. My sisters are spread all around the world right now but for Christmas this year MY ENTIRE family will be together. I think I speak for the whole family when I say, we are SO SO SO excited! Family time is fun time. We play games, we make fun of each other, we remember funny things about when we were together last...we just have a really good time. The kind of good time that you can't have with anybody but your siblings and parents and nieces and nephews.
I could go on and on because I am also blessed with an amazing church family and great friends all around me...but for now I will sign off. I hope all you (I am sure millions) readers can take from this post something great...appreciate your family, spend time with them when you can...MAKE time for them. And as the great James Taylor sang...Shower the People you love with love!
