For Days 4-6, I am thankful for... FAMILY!
I come from a huge extended family (my mom has four sisters!). We all may have our ups and downs, but I know I will always have a strong, large support system with people who love me and will be there for me when I need them (and vice versa!).
I am especially thankful for grandparents! Though my maternal grandmother passed away four years ago, I can still hear her say, "I love you, I'm so proud of you" in my ear, like it was just yesterday. I miss her hugs and phenomenial German cooking (peach kuchen, anyone?).

Family rocks! Go call yours!
