Thankful Thursday

This week, I have been so touched by the people in my life. It's really the little things. I am so thankful for the little things each day- for the sunshine this week, for caffeine, for finally understanding something in one of my classes.

But the things that I have probably been the most thankful for, and that have impacted me the most this week, have been the little messages of encouragement from my friends. The text messages that say something as simple as "I love you" or "I read this verse today and thought of you" really make me feel special.

These days, I'm just going day by day and needing all the encouragement I can get. I never expect messages like these- I'm usually the sender, not the receiver. But when my phone lights up with a message, and I see a reminder that someone cares about me and is thinking about me, that has such a positive effect that I can't even begin to explain.

So this week, it's pretty simple. I'm thankful for the sweet notes and the reminders that people care.

What have  you been thankful for?
