For the past 12 or 13 years, as my family has said our goodnight’s, the following words have been sometimes spoken, but many times yelled from one room to another: “I am grateful you are in my life”.
After watching the video today, I looked up and saw my daughters smiling faces.I continued watching…more smiles and a lot of laughter. I wonder if saying those words, and meaning it every night for all of these years, has made a difference in our ability to be happy. I think so.
