here's a recap of thirteen things i'm thankful for during the month of december (in no particular order):

  1.  donut date with my sis, nephew, & niece. 
  2. snow day!
  3. traditions.
  4. the comment that a man who worked at the mall said ~ he liked the dresses i was purchasing because they were modest.
  5. hot chocolate that warms your soul.
  6. the lack of bugs that winter brings or i should say doesn't bring.
  7. a grandpa who loves the Lord & always faithfully teaches the gospel. =)
  8. christmas break (currently still on break & thoroughly enjoying it)
  9. the happy news that stef is going to be a momma!
  10. the day my mom surprised me at work with a treat (i'm telling you, it's the little things i really enjoy)
  11. the promise in God's word that one day all nations will fear, glorify, & worship His name  (see Revelation 15)
  12. fact: i am the Lord's beloved.
  13. another year that the God has graciously given to me.
