This morning I woke up a little earlier then I normally do. I had some extra time so I headed to the living room and curled up on the couch.  It's pretty chilly out so I grabbed my blanket and let in the morning sun. It was so quiet and calm. I began to reflect on these last few months and became so thankful - overwhelmed by this season in our lives. After months and years of ups and downs, I felt like I was on one of the ultimate ups. One of my biggest dreams of being a wife had come true, I was sitting in our very own space that we have come to call our home, I have a job that I love, I've gotten to spend so much time with family this last month, with the promise of a dog in the near future. life is good. It's not perfect, there are daily struggles, and even larger obstacles, but gosh life is good. Today I am full of thanks. It's nice to just sit in silence and take in all the goodness of life, isn't it?
