Day 27: Today, I am giving thanks for family time.
I love spending time together as a family. Six months ago, family time was pretty rare. Family time as a whole family, that is. The kids and I were always together. My husband, however, worked incredibly long hours, and it seemed like he was always gone. The kids hardly ever saw him, and when we did get family time, hubby was so exhausted that it was difficult for him.
A few months ago, major changes were made at his job, and while not all good, it has given us a lot more family time. And for that, I am very thankful. For the first time in almost 5 years, hubby didn’t have to go into work on Thanksgiving. We got to spend the entire day together as a family. What a blessing that was.
So, while it means we struggle a little harder to make ends meet, I am thankful for the family time we get to enjoy now.
What are you thankful for today?
