So this morning I was drinking my orange juice and a rush of glee swept over me. I don't know if its because I haven't had my "usual" breakfast in a couple days, or that the flavor was actually that powerful. Some of you may know about the orange story that I wrote in High School, I won't take the time to write it all here, but I will say... sometimes its just wonderful to stop and recognize how much I enjoy little things like orange juice.

I am also thankful for the sunshine, beautiful days, the green mountains of NC and VA, time to spend with my husband, laughter (Matt learned this weekend that adults only laugh an average of 40 times a week and kids laugh an average of 400) I would like to be a part of raising the adult average. I'm thankful for my family, friends, good food, love, grace, mercy, and so much more!

What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for our new house.

I'm thankful that I live in such a great community with people who discuss and act on the things that matter.

I'm thankful that you posted this so that I could take time to think about all the things I'm thankful for.
