My youngest daughter has just returned from a four day music camp. My husband and I were willing to give her the experience of learning strategies to play her violin better; and of giving her the opportunity to spend some time at the lake.
While she was gone, however, I did miss her. I missed her hugs, her laughter, and her chattiness. Her sister missed her company too – especially as they are best friends who do a lot of things together. When she came home last night, we had a small celebration: a favourite meal was cooked; and a long conversation around the table took place.
This week I am grateful for my daughters. I am grateful for the pleasure they give me of their company. I am grateful that they wish to spend time with me: that they wish to chat with me and share their concerns with me. I am grateful for the chance I have to raise two children who have become precious daughters.
What have you been grateful for this week?

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life.
