Thankful Thursday

I just found Sar's and Megan's blogs and I think her Thankful Thursday link up is such a great idea! 
 
Being the month of Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season,
this is the time of year when my gratitude for the normal every day things that are sometimes,
often times, taken for granted shines through. 
 
It's the season for family, worship, fellowship, gatherings, feasting, gift-giving, crafting...
all those things warm my heart.
 
Today I'm thankful for...
 
~ Jesus.  This year has been a whirlwind of growing in my faith and getting to know His love.
 
~ my husband and my daughter Olivia.  They are the loves of my life.
 
~ coffee - it is essential to make my morning run smoothly.
 
~ a reliable car that's good in the snow.  We had our first (of probably many) snowfalls last night and this morning I didn't have to worry about making it to work on time and safely.
 
~ a Church family that has welcomed me and my family with open arms.  The women I've met are so friendly and caring.  I foresee long-lasting relationships.
 
Of course I have many, many more things to be thankful for, my life has been very blessed. 
Check back next week on Thursday for more!

Thanks for linking up, Laura. I hear you on the coffee and car bullets. I lived in an area that would get A TON of snow...snow tires were my best friends!! ;)

Happy Thursday!!

Glad you're joining us on our gratitude journal!

I love that you named your daughter Olivia. What a sweet name!

Your church family sounds just as awesome as your immediate family, and I love that!

I just love it all. :)

Isn't coffee fabulous?

I am so glad you share your faith and love for Jesus on your blog. That is so hard to find these days. LOVE IT!

And love that your church has welcome you and your family with opened arms. Church families are some of the best.
