Full of Thanksgiving Entry // Week One

Finding Delight Through Thanksgiving

Welcome sweet people!

Part of digging into and discovering delight is practicing being thankful; when we see that life is more full than empty we’re able to delight more in the Lord and His gifts. Each Sunday, I plan to post quick, journal type entry of the following week’s blessings and moments worth being thankful over. It’s a simple, fun way for me to recognize and verbally give thanks for the many good things God brings our way.

This week I am rejoicing over and giving thanks for:

Waking up to snow Valentine’s Day

Celebrating my parent’s 29th wedding anniversary on February 14th (isn’t that cute?) 🙂

Having my Beloved Man surprise me with a beautiful, white orchid Valentine’s night

Two long-distance phone calls with very sweet friends

Going on a date with my Darling Man to one of our favorite pizza places downtown

Teaching p.e. on a sunny, warm day! 🙂

Working through hard things and growing closer together as a couple

Splurging with my man and buying a bogo pizza from Imos (we really like pizza) 😉

Meeting with the principal of the school and discovering areas of strength and areas I need to grow in as a teacher and finding fun ways to bring literature into the student’s creative hands!

Happy over my sister-in-law’s birthday — so thankful for her!

Celebrating my sister and brother-in-law’s finding a very cute rental! Woo-hoo!!

Coffee and movie with a very sweet friend.

What blessings and delights found you this week? Do you find giving thanks easy or something you need to train yourself in? Hoping you find the beauty in giving thanks!
