November...30 Days Of Thankfulness, Day Twenty- Nine

Day twenty-nine of #30daysofThankfulness:

Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is so hard to get and to give! Forgiveness is something that we all need and we all have trouble giving.

To me forgiveness is something God gave us so we should strive to give it to others. I feel like forgiveness is important. Forgiveness is something God has commanded for everyone. I have people in my life that I need to forgive, people that have wronged me in ways you can't even imagine but even though they have done AWFUL things, God has commanded me to forgive them.

Forgiveness is great! Forgiveness is something that we take for granted sometimes. We tend to forget that forgiveness is a gift, one that we all need! Forgiveness is something God helps us do, we can't go at it alone and if we try, we will fail. God helps us forgive the people who have done little things and the people who have done the biggest, worst things we could ever imagine. God helps us forgive, no matter what the person has done, He al…

Day twenty-eight of #30daysofThankfulness:

Wisdom.

Okay, y'all, I am a really big fan of wisdom!

God gave wisdom to many people in the bible and He still gives the same kind of wisdom today.

I believe that if you ask for wisdom and you truly want it, then God will bless you with it.

God is a giver of many wonderful things! One of those things is wisdom. God has given me wisdom so many times when I've asked! Wisdom changes the whole outcome of a situation!

I believe wisdom is something that you can never have to much of. Wisdom is something that you can never run out of if you ask God to bless you with it.

God gives wisdom through many things. Sometimes He uses the bible to give wisdom or people in your life or maybe He just speaks to you.

God has given wisdom when I've asked about all kinds of things. ranging from "how do I move my room around?" To "God, how do I fix this?"

God blesses us with wisdom! And I think sometimes we think we want wisdom abo…

THANKSGIVING!

Happy day! I LOVE Thanksgiving. It's happy, fun, all about family and it reminds us to be Thankful for all of the many things God has blessed us with... and of course the food.

This year's Thanksgiving was AMAZING! It was fun, happy, full of love, family, friends and great food!

Thanksgiving this year was as close to perfect as you can get (minus two minor incidents). I love Thanksgiving and I love reflecting on all of the many things we have to be Thankful for.

I love the time we spent together this year! God gave us this time together and for that I am Thankful. God has given me so much to be Thankful for!

Just yesterday I was reminded how much love I have in my life and how many amazing people that have blessed me beyond words.

Thank you God for the many blessings you have given me.

Today and everyday I am Thankful.

Day twenty-six of #30daysofThankfulness:

The men and women serving our country.

I have no words to describe how Thankful I am for the men and women serving this country. They have made SO many sacrifices and given up SO much so that we can sleep under a blanket of protection.

I have no idea how we take something (more like someone) that is such a HUGE part of our safety for granted so often. These AMAZING people have given up SO much and somehow we forget that. We forget that these people often don't get to see loved ones for up to a YEAR at a time! We forget that these great, amazing people are risking their lives for people they don't even know! We forget how much they care.

I know people who are in the military, I've seen up close how hard it is for their families, I've seen how much it hurts to not know what the future may hold for their loved one. Even though I've never been through it myself I know that it is VERY, VERY, hard! I know it is a sacrifice on both…

Blankets and sweatpants!

I know it sounds kind of weird but I LOVE blankets and sweatpants. They make me smile! I have a Baltimore Ravens blanket (the Baltimore Ravens are my favorite!) and a favorite pair of sweat pants and every time I wear them and wrap up in my Ravens blanket, it makes me feel happy and safe.

Sweatpants and blankets are something we tend to take for granted. We tend to not realize that there are so many people that don't have sweatpants and blankets, they don't have that luxury and I think its important to remember and be Thankful for the little things.

The little things are so easy to take for granted and a lot of times they are the things that matter most. I know sweatpants and blankets are little things but we need to remember to be Thankful for even the smallest of things.

I love blankets and sweatpants and I am very Thankful for them!



Today My Best Friend Turns Seventeen!

Today is the day my best friend, my brother, and my hero turns seventeen! I don't really know what I'm supposed to feel, I'm happy but I'm sad, I'm excited but I'm scared, I'm loving this season and kind of, to be honest, not liking it. I really don't know what or how to feel about my best friend growing up and getting older.

He's my buddy, my pal, my dude, my brother and my best friend! Peter is so loving, kind, gentle, sweet, sensitive, happy, he gives the best hugs and he's.....well, my best friend. Pete has always been there to listen, to love, to give advice, to laugh with me, to hold me when I cry, to do "best friend stuff" with and for me and he's ALWAYS there!

Petey has been my pal forever, we were best friends from the get-go and then something happened and I had to grow up and he didn't. Then this seizure disorder came into play and here we are. I always tell people that if that was the only good thing that came out …
