"Earlier this week, I wrote about two major milestones our family has undergone. And, while there has been an underlying element of grief throughout my life for the past couple weeks, as I prepared for these adjustments, my life has not come to a halt because of these changes." This week's Gratitude Project is all about finding the silver lining in the midst of the family changes! What are you grateful for this week?
4 posts, all in one... 4 articles written for two other sites in the past couple months. Don't miss them!

The Feast of St. Joseph last week sparked this thought on my vocation of marriage.
You and your spouse are beautifully, wonderfully, fearfully made - and, you are both made in the image and likeness of God. Your marriage deserves to know every aspect of your journey as a couple. Take some time to reflect on your marriage - and, let your spouse know how much they mean to you.
