Celebration and Gratitude! (#143)

I think it’s easy to be grateful on birthdays and holidays. It’s my goal to emulate those feelings and inclination of thankfulness every day of my life. Today is my brother’s 18th birthday and I am thankful he’s not only my brother but one of my best friends. He’s going through a lot of change but knows I’m there for him. He’ll change the world one day and I’m glad my family can celebrate together on his day.
