Hello my friends! Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I think Thanksgiving this year should be more special than any other year. 2020 has been a trial for everyone, and finding things we’re thankful for can be more of a challenge, but it can be such a big blessing! This year I gave myself a goal of 100 things I’m thankful for.
I’m optimistic here at the beginning. 100 is a lot smaller number than I thought before. And there are no rules! So here goes.
- Succulant Plants. I got some cute ones this year. Named them too!
- My coworkers, old and new! A lot of people have come and gone, but I love them.
- Church friends. My church life has been a little shakey with the Covid restrictions, but this year I’m especially thankful for the T family, and for K and S and B and D.
- My new phone! I needed a new one, and having a job allowed me to purchase a good one!
- Having a job! I have a lot of fun budgeting and having some freedom with money now!
- Still looking for a car. I’ve learned a lot looking. Even if I don’t have one yet.
- Learning to drive! When I get over the stress of it, it’s fun!
- Camping with a church group.
- New Youth groups.

- My sisters. I love them so much.
- The quarantine!
- Go Vacation on the Wii.

- Only 7 Seconds. This is an account I follow on Instagram that reminds us it only takes 7 seconds to send a text checking on someone, but to them it can mean the world.
- Love. I’ve been relearning what Love means. What love is right and what love is wrong and how the world twists it up in such a way we have to erase everything we thing we know and start from the word of God to relearn.
