Friends and Family

I am so thankful for the friends and family that God has blessed me with. I am so thankful for the encouragement and love they provide on a daily basis whether I am feeling on top of the world or below the grass. They always seem to know just the right thing to say or when not to say anything at all. This period in my life has been filled with waiting and learning and growing that I know would not have been possible on my own.

I have been so blessed by the family and friends that have been able to visit us here in Portland already. I am also thankful for those who have yet to come but are planning to. I am so thankful for those who I can talk on the phone with or Skype at all hours of the night with! I am also thankful for my new blogging friends who I have met and even those I have yet to meet who have been an encouragement through their own writing.

There are so many things to be thankful for. I came across this blog that does Thankful Thursday's and was inspired to do it as well. Friends and Family were the first thing that came to my mind. My friends and family have been such an amazing source of strength and encouragement for me and I am truly so thankful for them. I believe God has placed each person in my life for a very specific reason and I am so thankful for that. New friends and old friends, new family and old family, all have played such an important role in my life and I am forever grateful that God has blessed me with each and every one of you! You reading this blog right now, I am thankful for you!

What are you thankful for today?

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
