Day 40: Fortune

I received a great gift from my aunt Lori today.  Ever since my move I have been unable to find the Venice DVD that she made.  I love her videos because it allows me to see a different perspective and reminisce about the good times.  I am so thankful to have this DVD again.

Next week I get to see a good portion of my family and it is much needed.  The more people that I meet in my life (including students), the more fortunate I feel to have the family that I do.  Although my family is not large, I feel so connected to everyone.  Now that I am older I feel like my aunts are like my big sisters that I never had.  My aunt Linda mentioned that we might have a "sewing bee" to work on a quilt.  How great to sit around with great people (maybe some wine) and work to finish something together.

When it comes to parents, I think I won the lottery.  I have two parents that love me and constantly push for my happiness; whatever that means.  Their love has never wavered and it never will.  I wonder how I was so lucky to be born into this family.  It is something that I never take for granted.
