I'm so tired tonight. It's almost time for Thanksgiving break, and the semester only has about two weeks after that. It's been a long, busy semester. But we've been so blessed this semester.
Today I'm particularly thankful for:
-the fact that one week from RIGHT NOW we will be with my parents, siblings, grandma, aunt, uncle and cousins!!! I can hardly wait. I haven't seen my folks since July and the extended family since the wedding in May. It's going to be amazing.
-only one day left of school till a week off. My goals are to get the house completely clean (in preparation for Christmas decorating!!) and (finally) finish thank-you notes. (I know, I know, I'm a horrible person...)
-beautiful fall weather. It's been gorgeous. I admit, however, I'm ready for snow now...
-new windows installed in the living room and kitchen today!!! FINALLY! They're beautiful, and I'm hoping they will have a positive effect on our utilities bill. Just a few more improvements and they'll be all done.
-continued healing for Joshua's dad. (thank you so much for your prayers!) We'll be visiting him tomorrow and I'll post an update later.
-my amazing husband. I know, I'm always thankful for him and I write about him all the time, but he is so encouraging, so sweet, so loving, so wise, and such a comfort to me. I don't know where I'd be without my best friend.
-our wonderful friends and fantastic family--such amazing people are in our lives!
