This weekend was nice and relaxing for us. Clint worked his last Saturday (we hope!) because he will soon be going to the Mon.-Fri. schedule...yay!! His sister Brooke and brother Ben made a quick pit stop last night to our place while they were on their way home to Kingsport. Even though it was a very brief trip, it was still so great to get to chat and catch up with them last night and this morning. We will be seeing them very soon because we are heading that way too on Weds. after we get off work. Clint and I are extremely excited to be visiting his family for Thanksgiving.
Every year at Thanksgiving my family would go around the dinner table and name one thing we were thankful for that year. This year I sat down and listed the top 5 things I am grateful for this year.
I thought I would share them with you:

5) I'm thankful that I get to live in a country that allows me to believe, feel, and worship the way I choose. I'm so blessed to live in a country that women are allowed to have a voice.

4) I'm thankful that this year God blessed both Clint and myself with jobs as soon as we graduated and got married. Jobs that allow us to give back to others in many ways.

3) I'm thankful that this year I have reconnected with my mother.

2) I'm thankful that I have friends and family who continue to encourage and support me no matter how far away we are from each other.

1) And of course, I'm extremely thankful that this year I was able to marry my best friend.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you take the time to reflect on how truly blessed we all are!

Missy, I remember how in ADPi Bible Study, you would talk about problems and drama with you mother; and I'm so happy it seems like you all have smoothed things out!

P.S. This is Sarah Hinton, by the way :)
