thankfulness – week 2

12 Nov

So last week, I posted on thankfulness and stated that I will continually post weekly on what I was significantly thankful for the past week.

I am thankful for:

    • Texas A&M – this is where I attended college and having graduated from here has given me numerous opportunities in my career and the friendships made here.  I went back to watch the last home game at Kyle Field before the redevelopment.  I haven’t attended a football game since I was in college, and it was so refreshing and bittersweet.
    • family – without my family I wouldn’t be where I am today.  Both my parents have helped me through so much.  Also, I am excited to get married next year and get another set of parents!  They have been so sweet and I love them already.
    • Berkley – she is my 11 month old German Shepherd.  I love her so much and she offers so much excitement and companionship in my life right now.  As she is maturing, she is becoming more and more loving and giving.
    • a place to call home – this is something that is so simple and basic to human needs, but I am thankful for a place to call home, to have shelter to protect me from the weather, a place to sleep, etc.  This is something that I take for granted, since I never had to worry about a nice warm bed at night.

As I am posting this, it makes me think about all that has been provided for me and I don’t give enough gratitude.  This is encouragement for me to continue to focus on this more past this season of thankfulness.

So it is November already! This year has definitely flew by!

Reflecting back on the last year, there so much to be thankful for. This year has been more significant to me than any other year before. This is the year that I realized what it truly meant to receive grace from God.  Through Him, my life has transformed to something unrecognizable.  I am thankful for all that He has done to put me in this place.

Since it is November, I want to list out what I am thankful for weekly. 

So for this week, I am thankful for:

  • my home group leaders – they have been extremely wonderful and they have been an absolute blessing
  • my fiance – to keep each other accountable in all aspects of life; and he makes my lunch every day 🙂
  • having a full-time job – since it is a tough market out there
  • cooler weather – yes, there are times that I complain that it got cold lately, but since I live in Texas, I am thankful for the cooler weather

There is so much to be thankful for, but those are what have impacted me most this past week.
