it's thanksgiving but i should always be thankful.

Being thankful is something I've finally got in the habit of doing. As my daddy says: gratefulness is realizing the truths in your life.

I guess what I'm most thankful for this year is Jesus. And what he's done in my life. It sounds cheesy, but I look back on last year and wonder how on earth I'm so different now. I'm authentic, compassionate, and joyful -- only because of Christ. Believe me, I still have a long, long way to go but he's changing me everyday and I can't think of a more beautiful life to live. I've now found life and true love. I couldn't ask for anything else to be more thankful for this year.

So with that being said, here all the rest of the things I'm thankful for. (ok. it's not them all. that would take forever.)

our new house // my canon // hot chocolate // long runs // a healthy body // my church with all the people who i've grown to love // a dirty fifteen passenger van that sucks up gas, but works // warm clothes // my siblings who are growing up so fast // my grandparents // late night talks with Jesus // trees to climb // frisbee to play with friends // my purple mac that i can write novels on // books i can learn from // my crazy awesome friends // cute socks // my guitar // yummy thanksgiving dinners


  1. Wonderful list, Kendra! So glad to hear that the Lord has made such an impact on your life. I don't think it sounds cheesy at all really. :)

    Take care, and hope you had a merry Thanksgiving!

  2. beautiful photos and beautiful thankful thoughts, kendra. :) and a purple mac? how wonderful! thank you for sharing and linking up your lovely post!

    have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I'm thankful for my crazy family and awesome friends(like you), having my own laptop, having a camera and being able to shoot, i know it's cliche but i'm really thankful that i just have enough food to eat every day, a clean glass of water, and a warm bed. I'm thankful for laughter and inside jokes with friends and family. I'm thankful for a wonderful church and church family, living near the beach, shopping, coffee and coffee shops like starbucks, christmas songs or just any songs really, books and that I have the eyes to read them, love cause without it we'd be nothing, fuzzy stripedty socks, ice cream, hot chocolate with whipped cream on top, a mom who is willing to cook a nice meal instead of just ordering pizza and actually is a good cook too, and most of all, I'm very thankful for Jesus and what he's done for me and that he loves me.


thanks for sharing your thoughts -- comments make my day!
