growth and kindness

Oh Lord, teach me the language of gratitude. 

Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. 
- Sarah Ban Breathnach

Thankful for:
the smell of Christmas tree needles in the living room
Trader Joe's Gingerbread brownies
a neighbor in our apartment complex who decorated the laundry room 
my dad who, no matter what crazy idea I envision, is behind me 100%
new opportunities for growth in our church moving into downtown Raleigh
clean dishes in the sink
a new tradition of game night at the coffee shop
