thankful, i am thankful

today i'm linking up with nish @ the outdoor wife!  


here's a list of 10 things i'm thankful for today!

1. i am thankful for a day of sunshine, fabric shopping & having a fancy lunch with a sweet friend.

2.  i am thankful that my God is faithful. He is's just His character. He is loving when I am hurting. He is strong when I am not. He rescues me when I am in a pit of despair and pain. He hits me with these verses when I am homesick:

Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear: Forget your people and your father's house. The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him, for He is your Lord. ((psalm 45:10, 11))

3.  i am thankful for taco nights and macaroni & cheese. hello comfort food.

4. i am thankful for my handmade/blog community. the support system i have is unreal & i am so thankful for each woman that supports me, encourages me, and has my back ;)

5. i am thankful that the package my mom sent 5+ weeks ago ((that we thought was, for sure, lost)) showed up today. furthermore, i'm so thankful for sweet sweet friends & family that send us carepackages full of goodies. fun dip, martha stewart living, splenda, granola, dried fruit, laffy taffy, etc 

6. i am thankful for the beauty that surrounds me.  something is to be said for crystal clear blue waters, palm trees, waves crashing, & intricately detailed, crazy-colored fish! 

7. i am thankful for days off after a really really really long week. 

8. i am thankful that i can live vicariously through facebook photos, blogs & tweets regarding fall weather, texas state fair, and pumpkin spice lattes. 

9. i am thankful for my husband.((duh)) GOODNESS this man's a stud. 

10. i am thankful for online shopping. haha that sounds silly & materialistic but SERIOUSLY, i have some SWEET things waiting for me when we get back...including this necklace from lisa leonard ((who else?!))
