Day 7: I’m thankful for my two sisters: Emily and Liz. You two have been by my side through thick and thin. Y’all have included me in your families and let me love on your children as much as I can. From shopping, to adventures, to holiday fun, to family picture chaos, and discussion about what to wear, y’all are my go to, and my favorite people. I love you both so much and I’m thankful God gave you to me, and me to you.
Day 6: I’m thankful for Emily Shiflet! We’ve been friends now for several years, had many fun and silly adventures, are working on our second round of Band of Brothers together, and in general probably shouldn’t be trusted together. I love our rambling talks about everything, our enjoyment of whiskey, tea, and coffee, our share love of stories and writing, but most of all our shared love of our churches and associations. You are truly and for real a sister in Christ. I love you more than I can ever say.
I’ve missed several days this week just due to a busy schedule. The bottom line is that I’ve been generously provided for. God is good.
To wrap it up, I’m thankful for holidays. They change life up, make us pause and think, and let us celebrate with food and drink!
I hippie you make merry today! Happy Thanksgiving!
Little flames whisk the smell of apple cider into the air and I breath a sigh of rest. Relax. Autumn.
So ready for orange and red and berries and crunchy leaves underfoot.
So ready for dark mornings, early arriving evenings, crisp playful winds with hints of rain.
So ready for clouds racing across the heavens, shivers sending me for sweaters, flames flickering consuming bonfires.
So ready for pumpkin everything, holidays gleaming, homes filled with yummy smells.
It might be August, hot and still. It might be almost two more months before real fall is here, but I’m ready. Oh so ready.
Autumn: my favorite season.
