Giving to Guatemala

Sunday, November 30, 2008


I know this post is well overdue, however I haven't had internet at my apartment for almost two weeks. It's fixed now, so I'm back to the blogging world....and I'm so happy. I've missed my blog :-)

Thanksgiving was different for me this year. I didn't get to go back to Greenbrier because of work. I missed my family so much and I know they missed me. I did however, get to spend Thanksgiving with my very best friend and sister, Samantha. We had a blast and I'm thankful for such a great best friend.

This year has been filled with many, many things that I have to be thankful for. I made this list out a few weeks ago, with an intent to post a few days before Thanksgiving, but since my internet went out, I wasn't able to. Better late than never though, right?

Things I'm thankful for...2008

  • Friends. I have some of the most amazing friends and they all are such an important part of my life. I have been through so much this year and the past few months and my friends have been my greatest pick me up.
  • Family. Even though they are three hours away, my family is amazing. I miss them all so much, and wish I lived closer sometimes. Even still, they support me and encourage me each day.
  • My church. Here and back home. Northstar has been such a blessing to me the past few months. I have made some awesome friends and have grown so much since starting to attend Northstar. I'm active in the Children's Ministry and love my kids so much. They are amazing and I love the time I get to spend with them on Wednesday nights. Back home, my church is equally amazing and I love hearing and seeing them grow. Calvary will always be my "home" and I have so many great memories of that church. The people there are still just as amazing as ever and the fire of God is burning rapidly through them. God truly blessed me with two amazing churches to be a part of.
  • Work. My job is great. Although I spend most of my days tired, I'm truly thankful for the job that I have Chili's. The people I work with are great and they really work with my schedule. I don't dread going to work, and I'm so thankful for that!
  • My relationship with God. I have strayed some in the past, but I'm back on the straight and narrow now. I'm still trying to find my place in life and figure out where God wants me to go, however I'm learning more and more each day to just be patient and he'll show me what to do.
