365 Grateful Project

365 Grateful – Day 11

Today has been a long and emotional day as we celebrated the life of my Uncle John and bid him farewell.  There has been no opportunity to snap a photograph and there is no photograph I could take that truly reflects how I feel today.  However, the image I chose for today’s 365 Grateful says it all.  Today I am grateful for my family.  Not just my immediate family but my extended family – cousins and their children, second cousins, aunts, uncles etc.  Today was a sad day but family members are connected by blood and a lifetime of shared memories.  We pulled together today and supported each other as only family could do.  Never take your family for granted – they are the ones who help you through the toughest of times.
