21. This woman. My Mama. I love her so very much, she is my best friend and I don’t know what I would do with her. She is ALWAYS there for me, even if I have to call her five times before she answers the phone. She’s the greatest and sets the example for me in every area of my life. I love you to the moon and back, Mama! 🙂
22. Family. I spent Thanksgiving at my grandparents house with my dad’s side of the family and we had a great time and loved being together. We had a lot of good food and picked on my grandmother about stressing over food she didn’t have to cook. It was fun day and I loved being with family.
23. This Woman. Natalie. Mrs. Natalie was my 11th grade Sunday school teacher and I learned so much from her. Now, five years later, THANKS TO ME. She is my mom’s best friend. I see her all the time now and I love it. I love that I am the one responsible for starting that friendship. (You’ll have to them to tell you about the very first time they met, they tell it the best.) I’m so thankful for the impact that you have had on my life and the one that you will continue to have over the coming years. I love you and I’m praying for you!
24. These Girls. I have been blessed with an incredible community of friends in Albany and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. We have been friends for years and I don’t know what in the world I would do without them. We are over the place but it’s fun to be together when we’re all home. The crazy thing is that the first one of us got MARRIED on Saturday. Let me just tell you, Sarah was one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen. I was so blessed to be a part of your special day and I loved seeing you so happy. I love you, Sarah Golden!
“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.” Psalm 100
P.S. My thankfulness Post will go all way to November 30th 🙂 So look for one or two more before the end of the month.
