a very looooong list.

Mrs. Traveling Hammer inspired me today.  She challenged me to make a list of blessings to combat my foul mood.

And so I did.

Turns out there are so many MANY things to be thankful for today.  And when you start to list them, you can’t really stop.  They just come pouring out.  But here are a few.

*This is waiting in my freezer for me:

*Friends that call, care and love me during weird, “bleck” times.  Consistency in friendship has become so important to me in the past few years.

*Winning a blog giveaway from this company and having it arrive in the mail (super cute denim jacket):

*Lunch and cupcakes with Mrs. Mary.  Talking with a friend who understands you is like medicine.

*Candles

*A God that loves me more than I can fathom and values me.

*A college friend getting engaged to a great guy.

*The possibility of new beginnings and exciting changes.

*A hardworking husband.

*A day that felt like fall.

*Getting together with an accountability group this weekend.  Becoming stronger and being challenged.

*New friends.

*An unexpected card at a perfect time from a fellow blogger.  

*Showing gratitude.

*A pretty cool mother-in-law.

*The fact that my kid cried while leaving my parents house today–she loves her time over there.

*Pizza.

*Salvation.

Thanks for the challenge, Mary.  It did this heart good.
