it's 9:30 and i'm just hoppin into bed feelin pretty tired (i know that probably sounds so early to a lot of you, but it was a full day and it gets dark soo early now..), but i'm committed to this pausing to write down what i'm thankful for, so here's a quick list!
i'm thankful today...
...for breakfast from dad. man, i'm spoiled.
...for the money both francis' & my parents are contributing to the wedding. i recognize lots of people don't have that kind of support and i really am so thankful for it. planning sure would look differently without their help.
...for a caterer! a helpful decision to have done.
...for a reassuring game plan moving forward at work. i was really, REALLY, getting nervous there for a bit, but it's helpful to know there's a plan moving forward and i might not totally die.
...for friends like afton, who make me work out ha, and feed me dinner, and talk to me. i love that girl. so glad to call her my dear friend!
...for mom & dad's fireplace. it is so cold out!
...for heat in the car, for a body that functions well and without pain and allows me to move (that's a big deal i forget a lot about!), for coffee, for God's word.
...for all i'm learning from (drumroll, please.. here it comes!).. the meaning of marriage :) talkin about gender roles today and it was real good. can't recommend that book enough!
...for my love, my fran.
all we have needed, Thy hand has provided.
great is Thy faithfulness, LORD, unto us.
catch ya tomorrow, friends!
