thankful thirteen (may edition)

thirteen things i'm thankful for during the month of may (in no particular order):
  1. late night talks with my brothers
  2. early morning snuggles with my niece
  3. MY BIRTH BUDDY (little evangie..i mean evangeline) 
  4. group text messaging. it's just more fun that way.
  5. old memories preserved on tape (JSN!)
  6. an air conditioner unit that works
  7. i won a contest!
  8. the day i wasn't obligated to set an alarm & woke up that morning to a relaxing thunderstorm (thunderstorms are great when you don't have to get up)
  9. "every time ray vinson talks i think his teeth are going to fall out"  -  this is justin's quote that made me laugh & cry for a whole week but nobody else thought it funny.
  10. the fact that God blesses us with thorns AND roses (trying to learn to be thankful for those thorns too!)
  11. freshly washed sheets - nothing compares!
  12. even though everything around me could always be subject to change, God is faithful & is still the same yesterday, today, and forever. 
  13. the completion of my rookie year of teaching!!!
