Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Hey y'all! Keeping with the Thanksgiving theme this week, Cents of Style is having a sale on the cutest shirt that's perfect for Thanksgiving! Plus, it comes in two colors. All you have to do is make a purchase totaling $25 and the shirt is FREE! Just pick out enough other items to total $25, add the Thankful, Grateful, Blessed shirt to your cart, then use the code THANKFUL1 at checkout to make the shirt free! This would be a great time to start snagging some Christmas presents for your sister or best friend. Just a head's up though: this deal is only good until Sunday!

So what am I thankful for? 100% hands down I'm thankful for my momma. She's such an incredibly strong woman and has faced trials I can't even imagine ever facing. But more than facing them, she's always come through stronger than before. I admire her strength and her unrelenting dependence on God. Regardless of what I'm going through or how much I think my life is over, she always listens with patient ears and graciously reminds me that the Lord hasn't forgotten me and that He has a greater plan than I could ever dream up. I'm not sure what I would do without her wisdom and endless support and love! It takes a certain kind of crazy to decide to get a PhD in chemistry, but my mom has been there every step of the way as my cheerleader. Seriously y'all there are so many moments I was done with grad school but she encouraged me to seek the Lord and suck it up. (She says this in much nicer terms!)

She's also become my best friend. I can't imagine ever coming across something in life I couldn't tell her. She's the only person I can ask my stupid, embarrassing, and ridiculous questions to without fearing judgment. As excited as I am to move out of my tiny town, I know I'll end up close to her because I can't imagine being far from her permanently.  So momma if you're reading this, I love you and so thankful for you!

What are you thankful for? What do you feel grateful or blessed to have? I'd love to hear about it!
