a heart full of thanks

As Thanksgiving Day comes to a close, I'd like to share some of the things that I'm grateful for this year.

  • My Heavenly Father, Who has blessed me in so many wonderful ways during this past year.
  • My wonderful family: my parents who give me so much love and support, my brother and sister, brother-in-law and sister-in-law who are always there for me, my loving and energetic nieces and nephews, and my aunt who does so much for me.
  • My godson, who is technically included in the nephew category.... he brings me so much joy and I'm so happy I am a part of his life.
  • My friends: Hannah and Robyn, Ev, Stasia, Leslie and Leslie and Abby, and Hannah *.  I've known some of you since I was 5, and others for 3 months, but you all mean so much to me and I'm so glad that I know all of you.
  • My teachers at college.  I am so lucky to have such amazing instructors, and their wisdom blows my mind every single class.  
  • Everyone at Franciscan who makes it what it is.  It is a dream come true to attend school there and I'm grateful for all the work that is put into running it.
  • The little things in life that bring me happiness: books, music, laughter, scrapbooking, photography, and cooking.
  • And finally, for all of you who read my blog.  You make blogging worthwhile.... thank you for your comments and support!

What are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving?


*Just so you don't think that's a typo, I really do have two friends named Leslie and two friends named Hannah :)


  1. I'm sooo thankful for:

    the gift of our Catholic faith--and the NEW TRANSLATION that is helping me to worship our Lord more reverently!

    the gift of a family that strives to LIVE the faith!

  2. This was really encouraging to read.
    We have so much to be thankful for!

  3. Gah! I forgot the new translation!! Thanks for reminding me- I am most certainly thankful for that, too. :)
