Thankful for little hands and big watering cans that honor the seeds I planted months ago by giving them the water they need. What a gift! It’s not everyday a 3 year old helps me with my chores from miles and miles away.
Thankful that the shedding of (many, many) tears leads way to conversations that need to happen, and that bring much needed light and truth into my struggles. Humbling and hard, but worth it.
Thankful for determined and thirsty puppies. Makes my heart happy!
Thankful for my growing obsession with candles. I’ve been lighting them left and right, and am loving the ambience + the compliments on how good our place smells all the time.
Thankful for the person I am growing into, and that I am not the same as I was one, two or three years ago (and that is a good thing!) Love this quote from Donald Miller:
“God designed you to grow from a baby to a child to a teenager to an adult and even after you’re an adult you’re designed to continue learning about God, about love, about each other and about yourself.”
Thankful for the Clemson library, illustrations, and a love for books that I hope to never grow out of.
Thankful for Friday night high school football games that feel like fall…and make me feel like Tami Taylor cheering on the Dillon Panthers/East Dillon Lions.
Thankful for that warm, familiar, autumnal feeling I get whenever I walk into Starbucks. What is it about that place? I suppose it just reminds me of my treasured early morning routine from last fall: oatmeal and coffee and quiet in Starbucks. Miss those days.
Thankful for September birthdays that are starting up in full swing this week. Love that birthdays are an excuse to make mountains of crunchy granola goodness.
