30 Days of Truth: VII

Background on the 30 Days of Truth series here.

Day the Seventh: Someone who has made your life worth living for

I think I would answer my family for this one -- my mom and dad and brother, and now my brother's family: his wife and three beautiful kids. I know that seems cheesy, but even with all my great friends whom I love and adore, I keep coming back to my family.

My dad is the most dadly dad out there, and he's taught me so much.

My mom is the most momly mom out there, and she's loved me no matter what.

My brother is always there when I need him, and he can always make me laugh.

My sister-in-law does such an awesome job of keeping me grounded, and she reminds me of what's really important in life.

My niece Madelynn wows me and awes me and humbles me with her intelligent observations and questions, and with the way she can entertain herself when needed.

My nephew Owen is also a quick learner and a fearless explorer whose strength and focus impress me. I also laugh whenever he eats something and instantly says, "Mmmm!"

My niece Ellie (brand new about 7 weeks ago) (whom, Grandma reminds me, I haven't really blogged about, although I have tweeted about her) encourages me to be hopeful for the future and grateful for all the many gifts that I've received.

Learning, loving, laughing, remembering, humbling, exploring, and hoping -- all things that are pretty much what I think is worth living for.
