Advent 2021: Day 5

Good morning and Happy Lord’s Day!

In writing this “calendar,” I’ve been doing a lot of reminiscing. Namely, our family breakfasts after church on Sunday mornings when I was a kid. Often, this included dear friends who became more like a part of the family. We didn’t have grandparents, aunts, uncles, or cousins nearby so they willingly stepped in. We’d crowd around the kitchen table talking and laughing for hours!

Today, I’m incredibly grateful for those friends who have become family. Moving away from extended family as a young person was a major loss. Thankfully, I was able to see the incredible gift of an “adopted” family to love and fill in those empty places for them as well. What are you grateful for today?
