I am grateful for your friendship, messages and support, as I fill this page with thoughts, ideas and lessons learned.

I am grateful to Jesus who is the source of all good things in us and outside of us. He is merciful, loving and blessing us beyond our comprehension.

I hope you and your loved ones spend a restful day with delicious food. May you enjoy health, peace and joy, always.




Some (definitely not all) of the things I am grateful for:

God and faith

My boyfriend and love

An ever expanding family

My parents

My brothers

Health— all those cancer tests were negative!

My friend G passing the bar

Amazing friends, near and far

Learning more about health

Being able to read

My profession



Oven mitts (and cooking with my lovelies)

Art (especially the joy that comes from watching people dance)

Being able to pay rent in this expensive city (I like how when I typed this, the emoji for NYC popped up. Apple knows…)

Being able to do ministry



The amazing young women around the world who serve God

Redemption (In every sense of the word)

How God speaks to our hearts

Seeing new places and the magic of the seasons

  1. Such beautiful things to be thankful for! And while I did not know about the cancer tests, I am so very happy they came back negative. Wishing you health and happiness this holiday season, surrounded by those you love.
