Blessings

-I’ve been at a job that I really enjoy for three years, as of yesterday.

-In Greenville, I’ve made some of the best friendships I’ve ever had and wouldn’t trade this time for anything.

-Despite the frustrating moments of writers’ block and self-doubt, I’m thankful that it’s been over a year since I started working on a book. I think I’ve grown as I’ve continued to write.

-I love my condo. (If I had enough money and the brains to figure this out, I’d physically detach it from the rest of my building and bring it with me whenever I decide to move. My downstairs neighbor can always buy another roof … right?)

-I’m going to be 27 (!) next month.

-I’m far more hopeful of the future now than I used to be. That’s partly because I enjoy the present so much.

-Jesus has used these last few years to push back against some of the lies I once believed about myself, especially that I would never be the kind of man with whom a woman would spend the rest of her life.

-Speaking of romance, dear friends of mine are getting married this year! (And part of me hopes this shout-out puts me near the top of the list of possible names for their firstborn child. I’m kidding–unless you’re serious about it, in which case, so am I.)

-Other friends just recently celebrated the first birthday of their son, and they continue to be amazing parents.

-In a few months, I’ll be spending time with my parents at the Grand Canyon. I cannot wait to see this place in person–or spend more time with my family.

-Gas has gone down three cents here. Regardless of how long that decline lasts, it’s still always nice to see.

    A lot of this if fun, but this is just funny:
    “(And part of me hopes this shout-out puts me near the top of the list of possible names for their firstborn child. I’m kidding–unless you’re serious about it, in which case, so am I.)”
