give thanks.

The tradition continues…40 things I’m thankful for this year.

The friends and family who make my life so sweet.  Gracious hospitality.  Joyful reunions.  Hand-written letters.  The ability to create.  Moleskine journals.  Traditions.  Red, red wine.  The crisp pages of a new book.  My health.

Being married to a man who is honest, strong-willed, and loyal.  Hugs.  The protection of and provision for my family.  Starbucks lattes.  Anything written by Shauna Niequist.  Exploring new areas of this beautiful country.  The men and women who selflessly serve our country.  OU basketball games with my best friend.  Unexpected gifts.  Kind-hearted and generous souls.

The ability to change.  Holiday mint m&m’s.  The soothing effect of candlelight.  Strength for today, bright hope for tomorrow.  Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.  The privilege of being known and being loved.  Roadtrips.  My home and who I share it with.  The uncomfortable moments that cause us to grow.  Forgiveness.

The unconditional love and perpetually happy demeanor of our crazy/wonderful puppy, Nimitz.  Acceptance.  A gin and tonic with a fresh slice of lime.  Celebrating life’s sweet moments and milestones.  Wisdom and counsel.  Photos that capture true emotion and expression.  Laughter.  Bringing other people joy.  Accomplishing a goal.  A sense of belonging.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
