I Am Thankful For...

So I've decided that my recent blogging slump is a result of the research papers I've been writing for the past two weeks. They've sucked the words right out of my head. I'm barely forming complete sentences these days. And I've still got one more paper to bust out before the semester is over. Huzzah. However, all of this is irrelevant, because this week is thanksgiving and despite my lack of eloquence lately, I still have a whole lot to be grateful for. I like lists, so this thanksgiving I want to say cheers to life and all the blessings the Lord sees fit to give me. Here's just a little taste of how good life really is, but in no particular order...


My crazy misfit loving incredible chaotic family, every last one of 'em

A spectacularly comfortable and warm bed

Snow

Jerusalem and everything that came with it

Snuggly boots that keep my feet warm

Chocolate and peanut butter, preferably together

Sleep, when I get it

My laptop

Laughter

An education at one of the best universities (in my opinion at least) on earth

A free country where the opportunities are endless

Mountains

Music, except maybe rap, meh

An apartment with a heater

A religion that answers all my questions

A job that pays me to take care of one of my favorite things in the world: books

A healthy body that only gives out on me occassionally

The ocean

My amazing thoughtful wacky hilarious inspiring friends

Summer rain

Temples

And so much more....

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
