A few things I’m thankful for…
*A loving Father in heaven who sent His Son to take the death penalty for my sins
*A loving mother and father on earth who set a wonderful example of following God and loving each other and who pray for me all the time
*Great siblings and their spouses–A group of people that manages to see past my worst flaws and love me anyway. Sure, they have to because I’m family, but they don’t try to deny that.
*My adorable nieces and nephews (all 8 of them, and the one on the way)
*An awesome church home–my second family
*(At the risk of sounding really cheesy) Friends– I have lived in several places in my life. In each place, I formed new and wonderful friendships that have lasted. Those people care for me, pray for me, encourage and let me be as crazy and random as I want.
*A job I love where I get to sing and dance for most of the day
*A wonderful house for which I can share rent with a good (and easy-to-get-along-with) housemate for a very good price
*A car that runs well
* The fog day (see below) that cancelled school yesterday and allowed me to get all my laundry done
**Finally, I’m thankful that I did this today. I stumbled onto this meme on a day when I needed a tangible reminder of how much God has given me to give me my much-needed attitude adjustment.
