thirty reasons for me to be thankful

a God who is way more awesome than I fully realize
a family that loves me far more than I deserve
a warm home
good food
beautiful friends
wonderful talent—or, at least, talent that occasionally errs on the side of beauty
Pringles (no, seriously, they’re epic)
good music that makes me want to dance and cry and laugh and love
beautiful books
being able to get my favorite movie trilogy for forty dollars when it’s supposed to be one hundred (Lord of the Rings, if you’re interested)
good people who are willing to put up with me even when I annoy them
a love beyond all measure and reckoning, that sent the God of the universe to a cross for me
a country where I don’t have to worry about being thrown into jail—at least, not for what my religious beliefs are
pens that fit perfectly into my hand, because they’re hard to find
a workplace that doesn’t mind me taking off for months at a time to travel
the ability to learn
baby giggles
stories from old people
beautiful landscapes
the twenty-first century
being able to climb out of my bed in the morning
occasionally being able to stay in my bed in the morning
generous people
other fans of things I love, that make me feel just a bit more sane than I am
the blood that covers it all
friends on the other side of the world 
all the little things

O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.
- Psalm 107:1


  1. Wonderful :) It's so cool to see how much we are blessed when we take the time to write some of them out :) Hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving! Love, Mary Kate <3

  2. What wonderful variety, Kyla! I love how you brought up the big and little things.

  3. Love it, Kyla!
    And yes, Pringles are epic ;)
