i'm actually really excited to be back! it's been a long time (a loooong time!) and i've missed this lil guy.
i want to thank you friends who have told me to blog again. that honors me so much. thank you for caring what i have to say, and even thanks to the friends who didn't say anything but still checked my site (likely in frustration ;))! wow! i've always just done this blog for my own enjoyment and processing, but to have you wanting to hear my thoughts, i just can't believe it. i feel so loved by that.
well, to get back into it, i'm going to continue my tradition of posting every day in november my lists of gratitude. because gratitude is just so important and somehow writing what i'm grateful for down at the end of the day here keeps me accountable. plus, it's cool to look back at lists from past years and see what's changed. so, here goes.
today, november first, 2018, i am thankful...
for this obnoxious duck onesie i got from my grandma and have been wearing to bed. it's really soft and i've slept really well in it for some reason.
for sharing my mornings with dad briefly at the kitchen counter before work. we both do our Bible reading in the mornings and then watch the opening of the today show and he makes really good breakfasts for me every day!! wow!
for the meaning of marriage by tim keller on audiobook while i drive. i'm only a little ways in, but so many good nuggets so far. i really loved what he said about self-sacrifice today.
for coworkers i enjoy chatting with throughout the day. different year and lots of changes at work, but same gratitude over my coworkers!
for calls from fran at lunch and just in general. i really like talking to him.
for sun shinin on my desk at work today.
for time with wendy and taylor (my aunt & cousin) at dinner... and for chips & salsa & that white sauce while we're at it.
for tomorrow being friday. for sleeping soon. for more things to be grateful for than any person should have.
see you tomorrow!
thank you, truly, for following along, friends.
