~Thankful~

Thanks, friends, for the love you showed me after my last post. The emails, texts, calls, and even hand-written notes were very appreciated. I did not intend to sound a desperate alarm of oh-my-goodness-this-girl-needs-some-love, but I am thankful that many of you showed love as a response.

Many of you know that Matt and I have 5 days off this week--together! We spent today with friends and family and getting ready for our trip. Tomorrow, we'll leave for Atlanta where we'll be taking advantage of Matt's Hilton employee discount for a couple of nights. We're also planning to go to the Georgia Aquarium where we got discount tickets thanks to Matt's step-sister's company. (Yay for connections!) We're very much looking forward to some alone time away and also to be able to spend a couple days with family for Thanksgiving.

I hope each of you will have a great holiday with family and loved ones!

In honor of the holiday, I'm leaving you with a list of things for which I am thankful:
~a personal God who knows me and loves me ~a Savior who continually saves me from myself and my sins ~an amazing, devoted husband who is also my best friend ~lots of friends who aren't necessarily close geographically but close to my heart ~family ~Nala ~living in Charleston ~the wonderful season when I was paid to walk with Jesus and love others ~jobs, in this time when many are unable to find work ~guidance for getting out of debt ~the opportunities I've had to experience and learn about other cultures ~people who sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel ~living in a country where I'm free to worship and serve Christ unhindered ~the internet for helping stay in touch ~this blog, though sometimes impersonal, it helps me feel closer to so many of you
