Thankful Thursday


Another week has passed us by. What impression lingers in your mind and heart? Has the good stuck with you or are hard things overshadowing this week? My heart is heavy about a few things that I have been involved in this week which makes this list essential. 

  • Advent has started and we got our Christmas decorations out. I have been so looking forward to this season. My daughter has caught that excitement too which is a joy to watch. She has embraced the Advent candles and Truth in the Tinsel activities.








  • Getting to spend time with my brother, sister-in-law and adorable 2 year old nephew. Watching him and my daughter playing so beautifully together, putting on "shows" together and having fun in the pool was so precious this weekend. Distance and busy schedules makes the time we do have together even more special.
  • The opportunity to work for an organisation and be hands on in bringing transformation to young people's lives. Many happy tears moments at our end of year Awards and Graduation night for Alta-1 College. So proud of each of my students and the hard work they are doing to overcome the obstacles in their lives. There have been some hard and heart-breaking moments with a couple of students this week and I am so grateful for the incredible team we have working with them. 
  • Encouragement to keep writing from friends. It means so much to me to have people in my life that not only read what I write but actively encourage me to keep going.
What are you thankful for this week?

    1. Thanks. So simple- just printed out the template (from the Truth in the Tinsel book) then got her to tear little bits of tissue and glue them on.
