I am grateful for phone conversations with my family of origin today; first my parents, then my brother. No particular occasion, just to touch base, like we do most weeks at some point.
I am grateful for time spent with another family at a park, where kids ran rampant, and Coop took photos of 6 different species of mushrooms in an effort to earn a cub badge, and Farley climbed pretty high in a tree by himself in an effort to do just that.
I am grateful for a walk in the forest to conquer Bear Hill with another family after that. Good for the soul to get out there.
