Among the 1000 gratitudes, I am grateful for my family – years ago, my older daughter made this “portrait” with some felt she had leftover from another project. I’ve always felt like it kind of captures some aspect of each us – the dad owl looks like the rock that her father is, her own owl looks like she’s in a rush to get somewhere to work on something else (yes! she always is!), the mom owl looks slightly overwhelmed ( true when my kids were those ages!), and the baby owl is just so sweet – all eyes and wings.

I’m so grateful for these people, and for the chance to get to hang out on the same branch with them while they grow.
