Thankful Thursday: At the Year's End

Well, 2012 is almost over, and it's been quite a year. I've had plenty to be thankful for.

God's grace and love.
My boyfriend.
Good health and an able body.
Being able to do what I love.
A place to live and food to eat.

How about you? What have you had to be thankful for?

Thankful Thursday: Slowing Down

This week, I am thankful that the semester is over, and that I am at home. I've already been able to spend time with my family, spend time with my boyfriend, and visit with my Grandma. Relaxing is wonderful!

I haven't spent much time online this week because there have been so many other things to do- finishing up my Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, working, sleeping, working out... the only problem is that when I finally get around to checking my email, my inbox is overflowing!

While I'm home, I'm going to try and take advantage of the slower pace of things. Sleep a little more, not be studying all the time, watch a few movies... it'll be a good time! Enjoy this time- it's all we have.

What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday: Free at Last

Today, I am thankful that my semester is finished! My finals are done, my grades are starting to be posted, and I am free in general. It's a really good feeling- I just wish it meant I actually got to sleep in! I'm too chicken to change up my routine or try new things, so I'm still going to my 6 a.m. Crossfit WOD. Ehh, sleeping is for the birds, right?

I can hardly believe that this semester is over. I keep going back and forth between being super excited and being overwhelmed by the fact that I'm "free."

I'm thankful that I survived another semester and came out with [most of] my hair still intact! What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday: Almost There

Man, oh man. This week, I am thankful that the semester is almost over. Today is the last day of actual classes, and then it's time for finals!

This semester has both flown by and dragged on endlessly. I'm excited that it's ending, because that means that I get to be home with loved ones for almost a month. I'm already looking forward to all of the things that I'll (hopefully) be doing.

But for now, I'm just thankful that the end is in sight! And also that after this semester, I only have two more on campus, followed by one semester of student teaching. Huzzah!

What are you thankful for this week?
