This weekend my family will be participating in the international family Olympic games.
As the USA Borgdorff’s head to Canada to enjoy some time with all of our Canadian Borgdorff relatives, I am looking forward to good conversations, lots of laughter, healthy competition, worship, fellowship and being together with my whole family.
We will enjoy opening ceremonies, have three different competitions, cheer, laugh, compete and celebrate and wrap up with closing ceremonies. In the end it won’t matter who wins what competitions and neither country will be changed by the outcome of the games. I am confident though of this; as the weekend wraps up, we will walk away grateful people.
Grateful for family and fun, blessings and the sharing of struggles as well, memories created, memories shared, and memories remembered. Grateful for so much…..
Take some time today to be grateful for the faces that make up your family.
May we all live as grateful people (even on the difficult days!)
