feeling thankful.

As we are beginning a new season of thankfulness with thanksgiving around the corner, I've been reminded of so many moments in life where I feel overwhelmingly thankful for the small, plain 'ol simple blessings. Like today..

- We woke up at 11am, yep just slept thru the morning..don't ask why, our internal clocks are out of whack. God thank you for that night of rest.
- It was basically lunch so we skipped the coffee and made guacamole from the mound of avocados we bought at Costco a few days ago. God thanks for providing us with that meal.
- I then made my way to the office where I spent 3 hours getting completely wrapped up in editing a new wedding film. God I thank you so much for my job.
- We carpooled to school, While Paul took a test I went to the gym and completed a 5k on the treadmill God thank you for giving me a strong & able body. 
- We met up and walked back to the car together, feeling cold for the first time in a long time with the fall breeze. God we are so thankful for your seasons.
- Home & hungry we threw together a quick dinner of chili & grilled asparagus AND ate at the dinner table for once. God thank you for these quiet dinners with my husband.
- Soon after we headed to our friends for an impromptu movie night filled with the best buttery popcorn. God thank you for blessing us with great friendships.

My days aren't always like this one, most of the time they are hectic & real life takes its toll, but I'm so happy to give thanks to a perfect & gracious God who gives me these small blessings when I'm in need of them most.
