I am grateful for my loving family

By Shari Boyce

It’s the little moments I appreciate the most. I am beyond grateful for my family – my mom, dad, and younger sister, and the little moments we share. As I get older, I realize more and more how blessed I am to have them close by. Even though I have made a home for myself in the city, “home” will always be wherever they are and the place where all of us can gather to enjoy one another’s company.  From our spontaneous day trips to New York City to Sunday morning breakfasts in my parent’s kitchen or when everyone (including the dog and cat) come by my apartment just to help hang pictures, it’s those little moments I appreciate the most and look forward to during the coming year.
