Today i am thankful for many things. number one being friendship. and number two being forgiveness.
Friendship. what would we do without the friendships we have in our lives? I know for a fact that i wouldn't be able to get through half of the things i've had to deal with without a friend there to help or listen or just be there for me. They are the people who make us better, challenge us, encourage, and push you to be better. So thank you to all of my friends who have put up with me, listen to me rant and rave, and who have just been there. I truly would not function without you!
Today I am also thankful for forgiveness. Forgiveness is always one of those tricky concepts. It seems so simple and yet sometimes it can be so hard to let go of something. The last couple weeks i've been dealing with forgiving and being forgiven...yea...been a great couple weeks. But i am so thankful for a strong enough friendship that was able to work through the situation and end up in once piece on the other side. I am surly not perfect and I have made my mistakes, but forgiveness is truly a gift. it takes courage and it takes work. It's never easy and yet is so meaningful. It's something we will always have to work on. But I am so thankful that the people in my life are forgiving.
On a lighter note here are a few other things i've been thankful for this last week :)
boots to keep me dry and warm, homemade scarves, breakfast with the fam, Starbucks decking the halls with red cups and christmas decor, a phone to get me un lost or more lost...roommates who have to good of a time being silly sitting at home or out to cocktails, warm blankets and fuzzy slippers.
Hope everyone has a simply Thankful Thursday.
