I can’t believe today is my last post as part of the 31 days series! While it feels like no time since I started, it also feels like a long month. I guess that every month seems long when you’re a newlywed or in a new place or both, simply because you’re constantly learning and growing.
Over the past month I feel like I’ve learned a lot about thankfulness. I’ve learned that our lives are filled with blessings, and that you really can’t take advantage of the smallest things. I’ve also learned how difficult it is to be truly thankful – to not get caught up in a worldly cycle of taking everything for granted.
I have also found that the things that I am most thankful for aren’t things – it’s people. My family and friends. They’re seriously the greatest, and are a seemingly unending supply of support and love for me. When I think about the incredible people I am surrounded by, I am totally in awe of 1) how much I don’t deserve them and 2) how even still, God has given them to me. I have so many great loved ones, and there are so many people in the world who would be good if they had just one close loved person – and yet my life is full of loved ones! How amazing is that? The most important thing I could ever demonstrate with this blog series is how completely thankful I am for my friends and family – I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today without the love and support of all of you.
