Month of Thankfulness
We all know November is the month of thanksgiving. Instead of posting every single day something I'm thankful for, I've decided to write a quick line each day that describes my day, what I've learned, and mostly, what I'm thankful for... and post it all on the last day of November. Take a sneak peek at the diary!
What a way to start off a month. Thankful for conviction, for friends that hold you accountability, for forgiveness in Christ, for James 5:16.
Thankful for productive, learning days. Thankful for books to learn from, for godly insight, for the reminder that a women was created to help.
Thankful for humility and learning to ask for help. Thankful for people willing to help - Fran giving me a ride to church; Cathy letting me practice my driving. Plus, making a great interception in football pretty much makes one's day. ;)
Thankful for meeting random strangers like Joe who owns Cheap Joe's and reminded of his sweet generosity when using the gift card he gave me.
Thankful for a sketchbook.
For meetings and things to keep you occupied else what would one do?
For my sweet little children at childcare.
Thankful for practice that makes perfect... even if it seems really far off.
For movies - cowboys, Josh Lucas, and Tony Stark all in one day.
Thankful for submission. For the space and freedom we're given so we can choose to submit. Thankful for the authority in my life and the continuous act of submission and respect towards them.
Grateful for the beautiful fellowship of godly women in all different stages of life and for the wisdom imparted!
For a warm coat, long hair that keep my ears warm, for the wind, the sun, even the anticipated snow, for God's creation even when it's cold.
Thankful for the reminder of how blessed I am.
Thankful for the 19 years God has been faithful. Thankful for his divine designs, those little so-called random details in life, that he has so purposefully planned. What a perfect example of a true designer.
For professors that are helpful and truly want you to succeed. I cannot be more grateful for the education and the amount of things I'm learning in college.
So thankful for seeing the fruit of practice pay off!
For little girls who push you into the center of attention for the birthday song, for gentlemen who tell off little boys who are being a little less than gentlemanly towards girls, for girls to have tea parties, trips downtown, Thai food, and Sweet Frog runs with... for friends. :)
Thankful for fun friends and good catchup sessions.
For being able to take off work sometimes and watch my favorite USMNT.
For delicious taco bells and families that are concerned about your extremely tired face.
Thankful that I am healthy even when I work at a childcare where everyone is falling sick this time of the year.
For my daddy, for his advice and guidance, and his help with selecting my fantasy premier league team this week!
You gotta be grateful for southern men and their southern directions.
For the Patriots and their epic comeback.
Thankful for trusty mechanics and being able to learn more about cars!
For rain, even as horrible as it is, for rainboots, even if they break on me, and for movie theaters!
Love the white stuff falling from the sky and especially grateful for the safety I experienced on the roads today.
Happy Thanksgiving! My heart is overwhelmed with thankfulness for Ms. Elaine, the Reynolds, and the other friends who joined us for a delicious Turkey meal.
For tears and people who care for you even when you get busted up on the football field again.
Grateful for the beginning of the Christmas season, for the fun in decorating the Christmas tree, and for the reminder of what this next season is all about.
Goodbye November! You've been a month to remember!
