Giving Thanks

I'm sitting in my big, cozy chair with my feet up and warm slipper boots on. The weather is chilly and cloudy, I'm crossing my fingers for snow. It's one of those days where I want to do absolutley nothing but wrap up in a blanket and dream. But life is calling my name and I can't ignore it right now..maybe tomorrow :)

Yet as much as I want to just escape for a little while God keeps reminding me of all the things I have to be thankful for, the things He's blessed me with. I am so thankful for the people that are in my life in this season, and for the people who have been apart of my life for years. It blows my mind to think of where I was this time a year ago. I was broken, hurt and torn. I didn't know what to do or where to go. I can remember praying for friends, good friends, that would be uplifting and encouraging and just...there. Friends that wouldn't leave when things got tough. I never dreamt that God would place these people in my life that I call my best friends.
