“Never let the things you want
make you forget the things you have”

I read that quote sitting on the couch, on other side of the country, away from our "real lives", as we settled into another new home and another community. The military loves to push our comfort zone boundaries.

I wanted to feel instantly settled, but I had my sweet family along for the adventure. We want Daddy home when he deploys, but we have each other to lean on. We want to have a lot of amazing things but have the power to create amazing moments in our lives and community.

May you never forget the things you have. Be gracious.
