I can't believe I have a mother!

A Grace-ism: We spent a weekend in Park City recently (pictures to come) and we had a little movie night with the girls in the hotel. Grace kept giggling and laughing while hugging me and saying, "I can't believe I have a mother! I can't believe I have a mother and a father and sisters!" Acutally, it was "muth-oh, fath-oh, and sist-ohs". Sometimes I feel the same way and want to laugh out loud and say "I can't believe I have a Phillip! I can't believe I have an Alexandra, a Grace, and an Adelle!" It is so easy to get caught up in the frustrations and stresses of daily life that sometimes I need to step back and just look at how blessed I am. I love when that moment sneaks up on me and I get that warm feeling knowing what a wonderful and beautiful life I live.
