Thankful Heart

A lot of you might not be around today or the next few days but I still wanted to post about the things I'm feeling especially thankful for this time of year. I hope you're getting more time off than me and spending quality time with all your favorite people :)

Though I'll get just one quick day away from this job, I AM thankful for it. It pays our bills, it's helped us pay off our student loans, the benefits can't be beat and the job security is incredible. 

I'm thankful for social media. Sure, it can be a negative thing if you make it- but it's nice to have information, people, stores, brands and opinions at your fingertips - when you want it ;)

I'm thankful every day for the safety and health of my family. I don't take either of those things lightly in the crazy world we live in today.

I'm thankful for my network of connections. It's amazing how someone you met years ago will be that missing link to getting something done, making a deal come together, etc! Pretty cool how that works sometimes.

I'm thankful for Amazon Prime. Lazy/busy person's dream come true.

I'm thankful for Jared and for our marriage. It is constantly growing and evolving into something better and better.

I'm thankful for a church that challenges and inspires us week after week. I'm thankful it's a place that gives us opportunities to give back in our community as well.

I'm thankful for mashed potatoes--- there, I said it. I've been daydreaming about the ones I will be eating tomorrow for about two weeks now.

I'm thankful for the 28 years I had with my Papaw. This will be our first holiday without him and I've been thinking about him a lot lately. I miss him but I'm so glad I had years and years of amazing memories with him.

I'm thankful for this blog. For the opportunities it's brought, for the friendships it has created and for the creative outlet it provides.

I'm feeling extra thankful this week for all that has been given to me in this life. I need to remember these little things a little more often, I know. I live an easy life and know I'm too quick to complain about minuscule things. Here's to being more thankful year-round.

Enjoy your holiday weekend, friends!

  2. So many wonderful things to be thankful for! Sometimes when work is tough or busy, it's hard to be thankful for your job, but it does have all the benefits that you talk about, and there are still people struggling in this economy. And I seriously don't know what I would do without social media or technology! I'm able to stay in contact with so many people that way!

  16. I would like to give a tribute of thankful heart to Griffin Church Loans. For getting church loans ,it's the most reliable source that cost churches fair.They are very helpful and faithful. I love their work.

  17. A very nice and mesmerizing article. Recently, we have bought a land to build church on that. But, we probably will need church loan on fair charges for that. My father suggested me http://churchlendersdirectory.com/ to check for a right lender.
