  1. So many things for which to be thankful! I’m intrigued by “small families” on your list…. thankful for this because there’s much less drama when there’s fewer family members? Because you can really know, love and appreciate your family members when there are fewer? Or, because it’s much kinder to our earth and resources to not pop out a multitude of mouths to feed?!

    • I probably should have specified it as “my small family.” I’m thankful that I have a small family because — to use a phrase recently introduced to me by our friend Mikki — I have a low tolerance for chaos!
