Thankfulness Thursday III


Hello, beautiful friends!

Wow. It's been a week. The craziness never seems to slow down, and there's been lots of heavy stuff weighing on my heart. But sometimes, you just have to barrel through and keep praying, and that's where we are right now. And that's okay. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel.

As always, we're back with Thankfulness Thursday. Because, like I said last week- when your brain is a hurricane of a mess, breathing out a thank you can do a world of good. So here we are. Messy but thankful.

-----

I am thankful for laughter. The kind of laughter that makes your sides hurt, the kind where you aren't even 100% sure what you're laughing at anymore, you just know that you're happy. 

I'm thankful for days at home to recharge and catch up, no matter how rare they may be. They're the most rejuvenating thing in the world, and I am so much calmer when I'm able to have them. 

I am thankful for mornings spent reading and writing and doing Bible studies. Mornings where you get to stay, curled up, avoiding the Internet at all costs, just purely existing in a state of pure silence. 

I'm thankful for quiet nights that are technically mornings, when the world is finally still and words are finally able to be written. 

I'm thankful for scarves and sweaters and beanies, which I'm constantly wrapping myself in this time of year.

I'm thankful for little things. Boxes of cookies, finding an unused dance studio tucked away, and sunsets that paint the sky pink. I'm thankful for Psalms and journals and talking to people I love. It's a good life, friends.

  1. I'm so thankful for pretty much all of this, as well! (I just don't dance ;).) And right now I'm thankful for the special needs people I work with, and what a blessing they are!
    Thankful together,

  4. I love all of these things! I can tell your heart is truly thankful. I just absolutely love being grateful, it just makes life so much better. We can get too focused on what is going wrong instead of focusing on all of the blessings.
