Thankful Thursday

Today I'm starting a new tradition for my blog! & I am calling it "Thankful Thursday"! Every Thursday my blog will be dedicated to things I'm thankful for. We are all so quick to forget blessings in our lives! I know at least for myself, I often do not appreciate what I have! Even the little tiny things are important! I want to do this to remind myself AT LEAST weekly and to inspire everyone out there in blog world to try and do the same! Take a moment or two and grab a piece of paper and jot down things in your life you are thankful for! Take a moment to pray over them if you like! Even if you aren't of a religious faith, you can still take the time to reflect on what you are thankful for.

What I'm thankful for today:

1. Waking up this morning! (tomorrow's are not guaranteed!)
2. Still having a job!
3. Having a nice apartment to call home!
4. Being able to go to college! (though I don't always want to)
5. Coffee
6. My car! (so far it has lasted me 5 years)
7. Being able to have a variety of clothes (though I do wear the same things over and over again)
8. My wonderful parents!
9. My AMAZING boyfriend
10. Being in such a awesome Christian sorority, Sigma Alpha!
11. Having such loyal friends!

12. The option to make or simply PICK UP food (though I take advantage of that far too much!)
13. Being pretty much healthy!
14. Forgiveness from my amazing God!
15. Being raised in a safe, loving & Christian home
16. Sunshine. (the happy feeling it gives you & the tan it brought me over the weekend..ha ha)
17. Being able to have 2 cats even though I'm in college!
18. My brothers!!!

19. Being raised in Texas!
20. My dad and brothers teaching me how to take care of my car on my own! (changing tires, changing oil, replacing bulbs, etc.)
