Thankful

(via pinterest)

Even though it's been a few days since Thanksgiving (and an EXTREMELY LONG TIME since I've updated my blog) I gave thanks for several wonderful things in my life....

.....a great boyfriend who loves me,
a mom and sister who spent part of their Thanskgiving with me,
wonderful new friends,
a (not so great) end to a long-standing tradition,
a promotion at work,
fabulous roommates,
completed Occupational Therapy applications,
my boyfriend's extended family and their welcome arms,
the exact words that I needed to hear at church (God is AMAZING!)
exciting classes for the spring semester (I'm taking boot camp!),
and learning to accept that I have no idea where I'll end up after graduation.

After church, Andrew's mom told a quick story over lunch about how her Sunday school teacher discussed all of the Thanksgiving posts on Facebook on Thursday, and then come Friday and Saturday there were lots of angry posts about the game or shopping troubles. It made me think of how everyone (including myself) need to be more thankful for the little things in life, and I'm going to start working on that more often. Hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
