There's always something to be thankful for

Thank you all so much for your sweet words about my Grandpa. I will be traveling to Kentucky today to be with family and celebrate his life. Amidst all the emotions and sadness this week has brought there is always something to be thankful for...

I'm thankful for 28 wonderful years with my grandpa and for all he taught me

I'm thankful for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

I'm thankful for a job that I love and for co-workers and parents who encourage me

I'm thankful for holiday craft shows and dear friends

I'm thankful for a supportive and loving family

I'm thankful for new curtains

I'm thankful for the colors of fall

I'm thankful that the sun rises each day

I'm thankful that my favorite comfort food is only 5 minutes away (Chipotle of course)

I'm thankful for a husband who lets my cry on his shoulder

I'm thankful for a God who cares so much about his children

"Your love is faithful Lord and even the clouds in the sky can depend on you. Your decisions are always fair. They are firm like the mountains, deep like the sea, and all people and animals are under your care. Your love is a treasure, and everyone finds shelter in the shadow of your wings."
Psalms 36:5-7

Make every moment count and always, always be thankful!

These are great! I am going through the book One Thousand Gifts and it is teaching me to be thankful for the same, simple things in life that I too-often forget about.

There is always ALWAYS something to be thankful for and I hate that I forget that sometimes.

I will totally hit up a craft show and/or Chipotle with you soon if we can squeeze it in :)
