Yesterday I got to spend several hours with some good friends, and I seriously hadn't had such a fantastic day for a long time. I think I need to spend more time with people my age. And I know that sounds cheesy, but as a home schooler, I tend to become shut up in my own little house. I have seven younger siblings though, which helps.
Anyway, Esther and Bonnie are such wonderful people. Esther was adopted from Ethiopia a year or so ago, and she's already picked up so much English. She's really sweet, crazy (in a good way), honest, and loves to laugh. Bonnie is a little bit more practical, she likes to read (you are my instant best friend if you like to read), she's pretty smart and a loyal friend. She's also very responsible.
In the past few days I've just been feeling really, extremely blessed. I'm realizing how much stuff I have. A laptop, a mp3 player (even if it breaks half the time), awesome friends, money, a loving family, a farm to live on, a healthy body, clean water . . . there's just so much. And I need to learn not to take it for granted.
What are you thankful for?
