Surrounded (#261)

I love football season. I love my New England Patriots. I love Tom Brady. But most of all, I love spending my Sunday with my family enjoying the game. Sports are an important part of my life and I’m grateful for the past decade plus of excellence the Patriots have demonstrated during the fall and winter seasons.

It’s not about winning. I’m grateful to spend the time with my family and have something we all enjoy together. I’m grateful for the game day snacks and traditions my family has. I’m grateful for the time my family shares rooting for our local team.
