During the holidays I am grateful for family. I am grateful for the off-pitch singing that accompanies the Christmas music. I am grateful for the times sitting by the fire drinking hot chocolate. One of my favorite things about the holidays is getting to see my grandfather at his cattle ranch.
I am grateful for the pleasant time I have there. I am grateful for the memories and stories that are lovingly told. I am grateful for when Dallas ices over, and my brother and I can turn our driveway into a hockey rink. I am grateful for the warm, loving feeling that envelops my home. I am grateful for the aroma of holiday-scented candles that occupies the house. I am very grateful for the amazing family that I have. I am grateful to able to spend the “Most wonderful time of the year” with the most wonderful people. Most of all, I am grateful that I have so many things to be grateful for.
