Thankful Thursday & Happy Thanksgiving!

THANKSGIVING

Happy Thanksgiving!! I can’t believe it is already Thanksgiving, and the holiday season is officially kicking off. I am excited to be joining Nikki for thankful thursday and sharing some things I am thankful for this year.

  • My relationship with God. Over the last several months I have evaluated some things and increased the time I spend focused on God and his word everyday. It’s been a huge blessing, and I love having a dedicated time for this each day.

  • A beautiful marriage. This is our first big holiday together as husband and wife, and I couldn’t be more excited to begin traditions of our own. I am so thankful for Dave, and everyday he gives me more reason to be. I am blessed to have such a loving, caring and kind husband.

  • A healthy and amazing family. Health is something often overlooked when nothing is wrong. I am thankful to have Dave’s surgery over with, my grandfather on the road to recovery (he had a 2nd knee replacement), and a healthy rest of the family. I am also thankful for everything our families have done for us, and everything we have all experienced together. Gaining a new family can sometimes be difficult, but I have been blessed with another great family. I am thankful to live so close to my family, and thankful that we have been able to see a lot of Dave’s family recently. It means so much, especially around the holidays.

  • My sister. I can’t say this enough, my sister is my absolute best friend. We used to fight all of the time, but over the last 2 years, we have grown to really love each other. She is the first person I want to talk to when I have something to share, and she will always put me in my place if I am being ridiculous. She has a heart of gold, and such a spirit that people love to be around.

  • Great friends. As people get older, it can be hard to stay in contact with your friends, especially when some are all over the world. I am so thankful for the people I am able to call my friends, near and far, they mean so much! I have made some amazing new friends this year and gotten so much closer with others. Each of them holds such a special place in my heart.
  • Creativity. This is something I am finally learning to share. Creativity has always been a hobby of sorts to me, but I am so happy to be sharing it through my work now. Especially this year!

  • SharkBait. Since I never liked cats, I am especially thankful to SB for showing me how awesome they are. She is the sweetest and always knows when I am having a bad day.
  • Support. Having 3 jobs, this amazing blog space, and a social life is a lot to balance. I have such an incredible support team around me to help get through, Dave, my family and friends are encouraging, loving and caring. They tell me when I need to get over something, or when I need to do a little more. I couldn’t put so much effort towards so many things if I didn’t have that. I am thankful for the jobs I have, for the busyness that surrounds my life, and for the much needed rest in-between.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your holiday with those you love <3

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I love that you said that about your sister because my sister and I used to fight all the time growing up! Now that we’re older we’re so much closer and get along so much better than we used to. It’s amazing how time can change relationships for the better!
