Thankful_January 25

I am choosing to be thankful this year. I mean really thankful. It’s my one word for 2015.

A Grace Borrowed, Found, Inherited

73. Every time I go home to visit the family, someone, usually my mom, will let me borrow a car so I can get around to visit all my friends and family.

74. The time I desperately needed a lot of money to pay for some unexpected bills that popped up. The Lord led me to look in an account I thought was empty. I found just enough money, a little more than the exact amount I needed!

75. Most people say I inherited my dad’s looks. I say there is some truth in that statement. But I also inherited some of my mom’s looks as well, along with her sharp wit and ability to laugh at her circumstances.

For all these things, I am so thankful.

Thankful to share with Sunday Stillness and Give Me Grace

We interrupt thankful to bring you Five Minute Friday for which I am thankful, so really it’s not an interruption is it? The word is share.


Can I just share with you? I think there’s a really big disconnect between my brain and my heart.

I’m at home visiting my family this week. I’m having a really awesome time. I’m sharing life with them. Good times and hard times.

It’s the Christian way, the Jesus way. And I’m so thankful because I really am having a good time.

But today all I want to do is cry. It’s like my brain knows I’m having a good time, but my heart knows tomorrow I will be going home. And so I sit here and I try to figure out why I want to cry even though I’m having a good time?

And it’s hard. I so hate the days when I want to cry. And it’s hard to be thankful for everything.

A gift wrinkled, smoothed, unfolded

64. So thankful for this wrinkled person. She is the reason I exist. ☺️


65. This one is examining her forehead because she thinks it’s smooth. Haha. I think she’s in denial. 😜


66. After she came home from the hospital, the visiting nurse unfolded her bandages to reveal these awesome railroad tracks.
