Unfortunately, sometimes it takes something sad and tragic to make us step back and really think about everything we have to be thankful about.  This week, one of our oldest son's friends passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly.  My heart goes out to his family and everyone who loved him.

We are so fortunate to have a healthy big family.  I'm so grateful for that.  It's easy to forget how fortunate we are when life is so busy... and we're struggling to keep all the balls in the air.  It's easy to let time whiz by when you're in the crazy years of parenting and not take a moment to reflect on everything we have to be thankful for.

We've been starting a goofy family tradition with our kids where we make blender drinks and watch Survivor together every Wednesday night (my drink has lotsa rum, of course).  So tonight we can all hang together and celebrate our family time with some Pina Coladas and a little reality tv.
