Thankful Thursday

Long time, no update. Although I'm pretty sure only 10 people read this blog...on a good day. Oh the scheduled Thankful Thursday :)

I'm thankful for music...I'm sure I've used this one before. I just LOVE it. I can't be on my computer in a quiet room...itunes is always open and playing.  Jake makes fun of me because I have over 8 days worth of music on my playlist. Limewire was good to me before it gave my computer a virus :(

I'm thankful for my internship. I'm already learning SO much and meeting some really great people.  I'm kinda bummed because the office only has like 8 people so the chances of this internship leading to a job is probably not so great but the experience will be awesome. And I'll just have babies and stay home for a few years, Lord willing, so a job hopefully won't be a pressing issue.

On that note, I'm thankful for how hardworking my husband is.  I'm so proud of him! We had a dinner for his internship tonight and he is the lead intern in his office. His business has really taken off and he's really starting to get the ball rolling.  He has always and always will do what it takes to provide and I LOVE that about him. I know he makes a lot of sacrifices so that I can focus on school and not have to work a lot.  He's just so great! I have to brag on him a little bit :)

I'm thankful for the wisdom and advice Jake and I can get from my parents and his parents.  They have been through a lot of life experiences between the 4 of them.  They are never pushy of their views or opinions but if you ask them they will give you advice to take or leave.  The older I get, the more I'm starting to appreciate what I can learn from the things my parents and his parents have gone through.  We're both so blessed to have such level-headed and wise parents :)

I'm thankful for Christ's example as a servant.  This is something that has been so heavy on my heart lately.  Christ spent His whole life serving His servants.  These people should have been bowing down to Him and most of them watched and cheered as He died.  That's heavy stuff.  I rarely serve my FRIENDS, let alone people I'm not close with.  I don't really feel that I have "enemies" per se, but I definitely wouldn't be a servant to them if I did.  Jake and I are going on a mission trip in June and I'm hoping it really changes my heart and attitude about serving.  We're going to serve complete strangers, but I know that's what I should be doing daily in my hometown...I shouldn't have to travel halfway across the U.S. to do that....sigh.

What are you all thankful for?! Don't be shy :)

I'm thankful for 2 daughters and a son-in-law who are such hard working adults.
