I love Thanksgiving week. It is the kick off of the holiday season. The decorations go up, let the shopping begin, seeing family and friends, good food and the list could go on. Before I jump in to enjoy the festivities I want to take the time to reflect on the things that I have to be thankful for this year.

-I got married! I survived planning a wedding and the first 6 months of marriage. :) In all seriousness I am so thankful for Bryan.
-Health-I count it a true blessing to get up each morning and feel good.
-Family-With me and Zack getting married this year my family has extended quite a bit. I am so thankful that I have my family to laugh with, cry with, and just be "me" with.
-Friends-The new and the old friends are all such a blessing to me. My old friends have been so supportive of me over the past year from the 1,000 wedding showers to moving to Wilson. My new friends are what have helped this girl that does NOT like change adjust to Wilson and boy am I thankful for that!
-Job-I am very thankful that each day when I get up I have a job to go to. Also, I blessed with a job that I love.
-Church-When we moved to Wilson we sat out to find just the right place to serve. I am so thankful we found First Baptist and Cornerstone Sunday School class.
-Bible Study Girls-I do not know what I would do or where I would be without this group of girls. Studying God's word with this group of ladies is such a blessing.
-Service Men and Women-When I lay down at night I know they are working hard to defend our freedom. Thank you!!
-Zack's Safety-I know that over the past year he has faced many dangerous things and God truly has held him in the palm of his hands.

These are truly just a few of the things that I am thankful for, but the most precious thing that I am thankful for is my salvation. I am so glad that I am a daughter of the King!

Wherever you may go to celebrate may you find a moment to reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!!
