thankful thursday 21

I have so many things to be thankful for, but these things have especially been weighing on my heart this past week.

I'm so thankful for…

a wonderful home & husband. Everyday being married to Lance is such a blessing. I know I couldn't be the person I am today without him.  He's constantly supporting me and encouraging me.  And I'm so thankful he got us this great apartment… the perfect little starter for us newlyweds.  It's just the right size and has everything we need.  We spend our time in our home talking and reading and spending time together.  What more could I ask for?

a healthy new niece. After all the births I've witnessed, I'm so grateful for my sister and new niece's health.  Some families aren't so lucky.  I'm so thankful both are doing well. I can't wait for some baby snuggles and a million pictures to last me when I get home.

the library. I've been missing out for years.  Now I know the glory that is the library. I love it. Lance and I may have gone to the library several times already.

phone calls and skype. I'm not much a fan of phone calls. I blame my awkwardness and introversion.  But despite all that, when I get the courage to talk on the phone I savor it.  In the past weeks I've had more than a handful of phone and skype calls that lifted my spirit in so many ways.  I'm so happy to catch up, share deep conversations and talk to my friends again.  It's such a blessing.
