I'm Thankful

This is my favorite holiday of the year! It's a time where the chaos that is my every day life momentarily stops to give me a beautiful reprieve.

I treasure spending time with my loved ones. All of the available carbs don't hurt, either.

This year, I have so much to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for grace, hope and love. I'm grateful to have found Jonathan — and for all the moments we've shared. I'm thankful for the little home we've built (figuratively, of course!). I couldn't have better family and friends. I love my church family and our community group. I'm thankful for the new jobs that found me this year — I am fulfilled and appreciated for the work I do, and I get to serve Christ thru my endeavors.

I'm even thankful for the little things: Crisp bed sheets, fall leaves, laughter, hugs, a new CD, that first sip of coffee in the morning, Pinterest, my blooming Christmas Cactus, creating something delicious in the kitchen, the last 100 pages of a good read, Saturday morning snuggles...

What are you thankful for?

Happy holidays from the Melvilles!
