Morning Gratitude #11

Today I woke thinking of a few things in particular I’m grateful for, because I think these things made a huge difference in my life.

I’m grateful my family grew up fairly low income. I learned some valuable lessons about life because of it; namely how to be poor. At least monetarily. Although thanks to my sisters it didn’t feel that way. They took care of me, and they did a great job.

I’m grateful for my wonderful sisters. They quite literally saved my life, and taught me so much about how to treat people, especially women and girls. I love them.

And I’m grateful for my marriage. My wife is the most incredible person I know. We have the same problems everyone does, but she’s so full of grace…every day she makes me want to be better. Every day she makes me smile. Every day she shows me a little bit of Jesus.
