Today marks 1 year that I've been at my job. What a journey it's been! Thankful every day that I get to work somewhere I love so much with a team of people that continually make me laugh and smile. I've had some difficult jobs in the past, and remembering them makes my current situation all the sweeter. Wouldn't trade it for the world. #workaversary
Today one of the worship leaders at my church asked me if it bothers me when he says "Please stand and worship". Two thoughts simultaneously came my mind. How incredibly lovely to be part of a group of people who love so well and who think about the words they say and the impact they have on others. My second thought is that it makes me all kinds of angry that we live in a world where a figure of speech or simple phrase could so drastically offend someone. When did we become so delicate and irrational that we take offense to something that is not said to intentionally offend? When someone's ultimate intention is to be kind and inclusive, how selfish must we be to still take offense and think they are "out to get us". Sure, there have been things people have said to me that leave me frustrated and feeling small-but RARELY are those words said with the intent to wound. So I'm the end it is my own pride and selfishness that needs to be checked, not their attempts to make sense of my situation. The words someone says to me or around me shouldn't make me question my self worth. After all, my worth doesn't come from the people around me. It comes from the One who made me. All that to say...good questions give me hope and make me thankful for people who care enough to ask them. #bekind#askgoodquestions#thoughtsforsunday
Life without these two would be yuckity yuck. They make me laugh, they are the best at bringing out my inner goofball, they are there for me when life gets rough, and they are two of the best people I know. Forever grateful I get to call them my siblings. #nationalsiblingday#theyarethebest
Found my new favorite place. These guys know what's up. 🍸
The perfect ending to the perfect day. Sometimes it hits me how much I have to be thankful for in my life right now - incredible friends, amazing family, and so many things to experience, and exciting adventures to go on. This is the good life.
Car shopping, and wishing with all my might that cars still looked like this because it's all I really want. Forget all these hip new cars- given me an old jalopy and I would be happy as a clam! 🚙 #thestruggleisreal#oldcarsarethebest#minicooper (not my photo)
