Appreciate - What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it? Looking back at all of the challenges and hard times of this past year, I would have to conclude that what I appreciate most is the strength of my marriage and therefore my family. We have had to deal with some major challenges, sometimes ugly and down to the nitty gritty but we always pulled through, together. Every challenge has posed a chance to learn, grow and come together which is what always happens in the end. Having a strong marriage sets a strong foundation for the family. I feel blessed to have a stable and loving environment to raise my children. My family is the most important facet of my life. On a daily basis I let my husband and children know how much they mean to me, how much I love them and how thankful I am to have such an amazing family. I am one lucky lady.
