{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Wrapped (and shipped) presents. The presents are wrapped... the bows are tied... the gift tags are signed. This makes me so happy. And... if all goes as planned, everything will be shipped out to it's various locations today! Keeping my fingers crossed that the post office line isn't too terribly dreadful.

2) Our community group. I love this group. They encourage me, challenge me, and make me laugh. This past Tuesday we volunteered our time for a clean up at the Scarlet Hope house. I'm so grateful for these friends.

3) Encouragement. A thoughtful text... a kind phone call... a sweet gift in the mail... a perfect quote... I swear, it's like all of these things happened simultaneously all by different girlfriends... none of them even remotely aware how much their simple act of kindness encouraged me at just the right moment.
