My daily gratitude for:
- The small birthday celebration for Ryan last night. He is growing up with lots of personality, as all do.
- Elana’s building up my moms visit with Aiden. Her encouragement and support of this relationship is so important to me as I want her to think of Aiden as grandson and Aiden to think of her as a grandmother. I really appreciate Elana being excited about her visit for this reason.
- My nephew Elijah who celebrates his 3rd birthday!!! Happy birthday to a fantastic nephew and one very supercool kid!
- The elders and Steve who support my part time youth ministry with Mikey. I love their encouragement of us, since youth ministry can be quite challenging and exhausting, but very rewarding.
