My family has a tradition of going around the table and sharing what blessing we are most thankful for each year. This year my Dad said he was thankful for his surprise birthday party, my sister said she was grateful we had a record year of family get togethers, I said mine was the birth of baby Maria, etc.
Then we got to Alex. He looked up and simply said "My Mama."
This impossible mothering job comes with many, many benefits.
