Every Thanksgiving when my family gets together we go around the table and say one thing you are thankful for. Most people do the typical things like family, friends, the awesome country we live in, shelter, etc. But for this Thanksgiving post please just assume I am thankful for all the aforementioned things (because I am). Instead, I am going to list, in no particular order, a few things that I am thankful for that also gives you a little piece of me - a Thanksgiving biography if you will.
Books I love books. I have over 500...in alphabeticial order...my husband says I have to read them all before I die. I think I've read maybe 100 of them? The public library keeps getting in my way. FYI this does not include cookbooks or childrens books.
My camera Some of you know that I am a HUGE shutterbug and even run my own photography business. All the pictures used for the blog headers so far I have taken, including this weeks, which contains two people I am crazy thankful for.
The human imagination The things that we humans create are just so amazing. Cars, the internet, a hand blender, shoes, pie, the stories IN the books that I love. I feel like our imaginations must be some small, tiny reflection of God's creativity. We ARE created in his likeness as you all know.
Marriage I love being married. It is so much better than I could've ever imagined. I'll speak for my husband and say he totally agrees with me.
Vancouver Island Over the course of my childhood, Vancouver Island was always our safe haven. We always had fun there, we always felt safe and loved. All my memories of this place are like a fairytale. I can't wait to take my family there someday.
Belgic Confession This is my favourite doctrine that the CRC uses. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. If you have read it, read it again here.
Coffee I love a good cup of coffee. I love it so much that I bought a french press for a friend that only has instant coffee. I visit her enough that it felt like a warranted purchase.
My church The longer I am with all of you, and getting to know all of you, the harder I find it would be to leave. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I just thought you should know that you, Community CRC, hold a dear spot in my heart.
That's all for now. Maybe I will do another themed biography list in the future, like at Christmas. Which by the way, is my favourite holiday and is only 75 days away. I'm sure you all appreciate knowing this.
