…beautiful fall weather.
…golden light illuminating leaves of many hues. Even shades of decaying brown are made beautiful by light.
…redeemed relationships, even if it’s only between me and the crazy dog. I think we’ve finally reached a mutually enjoyable understanding.
(And even *I* have to admit that she’s pretty cute.)
…love shown in tangible forms, not just in words (although those are nice too).
…my mother. She made me two new dresses last week! I like to cook, she likes to sew, so sometimes we trade favors. 😉 And she was mostly just being really, really sweet.
(speaking of my mom)
…my mom and sisters. They’re some of my best friends.
…God’s attention to the details. I needed a certain amount of that red fabric, and JoAnn’s had just enough!
…the ability and opportunity to split some wood. I love splitting wood. It’s great exercise, it makes me feel productive, it clears my head, and it means we have wood to burn in the fireplace when the air has a freezing bite to it!
…the fact that I actually like to run now. I don’t do anything spectacular, but I usually get out around five times a week. Running clears my head, fires up my metabolism, and helps me sleep deep at night! It’s been the extra incentive my body needed to trim up and finally lose some weight.
…a kitchen to cook in (thanks for sharing, Mom!).
…the fact that this Drinkable Hot Chocolate Custard turned out a-maz-ingly and tastes like Pizza Inn’s chocolate pudding when refrigerated.
…the recent recipe videos I’ve been able to make. (It was a project I was dreading jumping into for a very long time, but it’s actually doable!)
…when pictures turn out pretty.
(Psst – This recipe will be coming to you next week! Be sure to sign up for email updates at the top of the page to make sure you see it!)
…my family. I have the best family. Like, forrealz. They get me, they admonish me, they encourage me, and they love me unconditionally.
…the fact that this year’s Christmas picture mostly sort of turned out even though it was a tripod/self timer deal. 😛

You know what’s cool? The things that I’m most thankful for are free! Including salvation my Christ’s righteousness covering me, which is the thing for which I am most thankful.
