This whole week, namely because the Thanksgiving holidays are on my mind, I am reminded that I have a mountain load of things to be grateful for. Just so you know, this is about to get a little personal. Being in another place far away from family has me relishing in the simple joys of family-hood: Presence. I live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but the tradition of a Southern- American Thanksgiving has me longing for my first home.
First of all, I serve a God who loves me beyond my wildest imagination. Secondly, I am totally in love with my husband who out-does my affections on a daily basis. I am thankful that we laugh together, and I hope we always find something worth laughing about. I wake up every morning with the freedom to be an artist and to create, and I get to do it for a living! My friends are loyal and love my unconditionally, as do my families on both sides. And one of the most exciting things is that I will be welcoming my first nephew next Spring. I’m seriously tempted to buy him every single crocheted hat for newborns on etsy.com.
I find that it is so important to sit down and put life into perspective and see that yes, we have it so good.
