I'm about to head out on our family vacation/road trip. I was planning to post this Friday, right before leaving but I needed to get it done today instead. The other day, I got to spend time with one of my girlfriends taking lots of pictures, sharing our camera settings and comparing our notes and was so grateful for the time and opportunity. It got me thinking about what else I'm grateful for right now, so I decided to make this post all about that! Isn't that a great way to head out on vacation?
I'm grateful for good friends who don't think I'm nuts when I suggest going to a cemetery to snap photos.
I'm grateful for friends who chew on deep topics with me, working toward bettering ourselves.
I'm grateful for the peace that floods my heart when I'm around those that know me so well.
I'm grateful for my camera because it's just fun to use and this hobby makes me so happy!
I'm grateful for pretty pink flowers, even if they make my eyes itch and run like crazy.
I'm grateful for the chance to learn new things.
I'm grateful that today I woke up on the right side of the dirt.
...I'm grateful because someday when I don't, I know where I'll be.
I'm grateful for loved ones.
I'm grateful for the possible peace and rest of vacation- our family's very first one! (We went to Disneyland for three days but trust me it wasn't peaceful or very restful. We are hoping for some of that on this one.)
I'm grateful for the path I'm being guided to walk down, since I don't walk it alone. I've been given supportive family and friends, not to mention a very present God who has a plan.
I'm grateful for the promise of a bright future!
What are you grateful for today?
