If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained. ~Neil Gaiman

Today I am thankful that I am the least daring one in my family (at least where the ski slopes are concerned). I am thankful they are adventurous.


I felt grateful watching Max work to put on his snowboard. He really loves this activity and is willing to work at it, which gives me a sense of contentment. As much as I want him to be little forever, his growing and learning is the better option.


I’m grateful for time alone with each kid on a ski lift. The conversations up there are priceless.
