Happy Thanksgiving!


...for friends!
...for lazy days on the couch with my boyfriend!
...for football...even though it bores me to zzz's.
...for sore muscles after a long walk.
...for summer!
...for flexibility when plans change.
...that we love each other and can work through our disagreements.
...for running into familiar faces at the mall.
...for my camera.
...for the animals that God created.
...for family time!
...for the ability to trust.
...for silliness.
...for public transportation.
...for good books
...for good and bad days.
...to have a boyfriend who understands me and doesn't think twice when I ask him to buy me a jar so I can start a thankful jar!

I don't remember exactly when it was, because I wrote all over the receipt when we bought the jar and now I can't read it.  At some point in time, I wanted to write down something that I was thankful each day and place it in a jar.  Then, I would pour out all the little notes and read them around thanksgiving. 

I remember the stories about some of the notes, but others, I have no idea what was going on that day.  For example, the only time I ever take public transportation is when I go to San Francisco and the animals was probably when I went to the zoo.  But good and bad days could have been any day!

Unfortunately, I didn't do write a thankful note everyday (or very often) like i wanted to, so I don't have very many.  I hope to keep this going though because it was really interesting to see what I was thankful for over the year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for?
