Give Thanks

Megan over at Captivated is hosting her first Link Up called Thankful Thursday. I think this is such a great way to focused on all the ways that we are blessed. Life is good :) Here are some things I am thankful for today.

1. The SUNSHINE <3 Summer is just around the corner!

2. This week, I can cross 3 goals off my 101 in 1001 list! I've gathered 25 articles of clothing to donate, I've completed 1 week of vegetarianism, and I successfully gave up coffee and fast food for Lent :)

3. My parents are giving JD and I an awesome wedding. I'm am so lucky to have parents who were not only able to send me to college, but to host the best day of my life!

4. JD has a great job that he enjoys. He is able to support us while I'm searching for a position to start my career.

5. My friends and family are healthy.

6. JD :) He's the best fiance a girl could as for.

7. That I have groceries in my cupboard, shoes on my feet, and a roof over my head.

8. That I have money to buy gas for my car.

9. My cat. As "crazy cat lady" as it may seem, he's my furry little companion and I would be so lonely all day without him!

10. Easter! We have been given the gift of eternal life.

One more thing before I check out for the day-- Jamie over at this kind of love is giving away a copy of the movie Fireproof. Check out her blog to read a summary of the movie and enter to win!

love this. it's easy to find things to complain about...((in my life, at least! haha!)), but it's rare that someone makes a point to share what they're thankful for. may have to try this ;)

Speaking of your 101 in 1001 list (Love it by the way), I see that you're looking for a church. Have you tried Blackhawk yet? It's on the west side and my home church. There are tons of young people there, lots of activities and great teaching. I love it there and miss it so much now that I no longer live in Madison. I hope you find a church you love :).
