Walks, Talks and Gratitude

I really wanted to post this gratitude post last night but I was enjoying spending time with my family too much.  

I got to go on two walks last night!  I had no problem getting all of my steps in at all.  YAY!  

I had a nice long walk with DD which meant we had a nice long chat.  I love chats with this girl.  She is so wise and her take on life is always so refreshing!

My second walk was with my DH and again, nice long chat about life and how we are doing.  It was nice and refreshing.

Before that DS came by for a nice visit!  Those are coming fewer and farther between as he starts his own life so I cherish every single second I get to spend with him.  He is so smart and funny.  He's just like dad and knows how to tell a story!

And I ended my evening with nice long chat with my mother.  I miss her terribly and wish I could live closer to her and my siblings and their families but my life is here and I know that I right where I'm supposed to be even it is hard sometimes.  Anyway, love my chats with my mom.  I call her several times a day and each call is so important to me.

OH!  And I got to talk to my DB (darling brother) today too!  I talk to him or my sister enough.  Shame on me but I think of them every day.

I love them all so much and they bring me such joy and yes, I am forever grateful for them.  I can't imagine life without them.  Family is the best.

Thank you, God, for every single second I get to spend with these amazing people you have surrounded me with in this life.  I can't express my gratitude enough.


  1. Family IS so important! I talk to my mother every day as she lives alone since Dad passed two years ago. I should talk to my brother more, and wish my son would call once in a while. I do have a great connection with my daughter, though, who has given me three of the most darling granddaughters ever; we visit often.
    Blessings, Sherri!

    1. My father passed away about a year and half ago too. I call Mom every day at least twice and lots of times more. I'm sure I drive her crazy but lucky for me she loves me! HA!

      Family is everything to me.

  2. Sherri, I'm glad that you have a good relationship with your family, that in and of itself is a blessing. My family simply isn't all that close--geographically and otherwise. Therefore, I'm thankful for my friends who I consider family.


    1. My husband is retired military and we live the closest we ever have now and that's still 9 hours from 'home'. I definitely don't talk to my siblings as often as I should but my mom keeps me informed about them regularly. :)

      We have many friends how we consider family and I'd be lost without them!
