family. all of them

the human body
forgiveness and grace
My mom always makes us do "affirmations" at holiday meals. We always groaned at them as kids, but as an adult I really appreciate this. It really just means that we go around the table and give an honest affirmation to each individual, something we appreciate about them. Something more than "you're cool" or "I like your hair." It's hard! But rewarding. I got choked up. All the little things that bug you about a family member (let's all be honest, they exist) seem to disappear and you realize that you really do appreciate X,Y, and Z about them. Try it. I think you'll like it.

What's not to be thankful for?
