And thus ends 2017. This year has been amazing. There have been so many memories to share. 2018 is just a few hours away with new adventures to be had, new stories to be told, and new memories to make. But before we ring in the New Year, I wanted to share with you what I received for Christmas.

Reflections: 30 Things I’m Thankful For


I have so many things to be thankful for.

Family. Friends. Safety. Freedom. Food. Faith.* The Bible says, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thes. 5:18) I touched on this topic of thankfulness in this post. Because Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away for some of you (it sure doesn’t feel like it here – it’s cold and snowy), I wanted to share 30 things that I’m thankful for.
