hey i've been a bit absent from here due to the things i just listed but i'm gonna combine a list of gratitudes from the long weekend. thanks for bearing with me, you kind friends who check in!
so here goes! first things that come to my head..
i'm thankful for...
... a cozy warm home that my mom & dad work so hard on. it's so nice to have such a cozy place to be & rest.
...sidney being home!!! hallelu! i love my sister and was really good to be with her so much.
...a little time away for coffee with alyssa. we got coffee on the morning of thanksgiving last year and i liked it a lot. not sure if it'll be a tradition every year, but two years strong so far!
...so much time with francis. i was spoiled and now today i'm like where are you, fran?? come back!
...food. good food. plentiful food. snacks and dinners and leftovers and thanksgiving and desserts. isn't food nice? (:
...picking on dave. haha. i looove picking on him. lil nug.
...time with extended family i don't get to see often. for how chill they are. i really like chill people. (:
...seeing two movies this week/end! i think movies are really fun. i saw fantastic beasts: crimes of grindelwald with sidney and the green book with fran and both were really good! i'd recommend either of those if you're lookin!
...good deals! i'm just as annoyed with the consumerism of this time of year as the next person, but... i was able to save so much money on christmas gift shopping on friday so, guess ya caught me.. i'm thankful for them dealz!
...christmas tree day! ya gotta love christmas tree day! i'm thankful francis was able to come, too.
...christmas decorations and christmas music! i love this time of year. probably because i love being cozy and christmas adds a lot of coziness. there are lots of reasons to love christmas.
...emily and james housworth. buddies i hadn't seen in a while. they're such wonderful people.
...a nap with fran in the sun after church.
...a year with francis flood, my love, my dear man. for special celebrations and thoughtful gifts. my sweet love.
...a sweet time with fran yesterday sharing tears. it was really really special. i'll always remember our first anniversay.
...stillwater. i really like stillwater.
...my parents' generosity. how they take care of us.
...all these gifts and more. our dear Father has lavished us with good gifts. soo many things! He takes care of us. i'm gonna say it again, He takes care of us.
He's so good.
all we have needed, Thy hand has provided.
happy thanksgiving, friends! thank you for bein here.
