Sunday Reflection: Gratitude

There are so many things that I am thankful for. I cannot begin to put into words how all of these beautiful things that have happened has (and will continually) shaped me to be the woman that I am today — things of which were made possible through the grace and love of God. Here are a few things that I am deeply thankful for:

  • Getting through my first year in college
    • (And attaining Dean’s List for both semesters)
  • Being able to come home for the summer
    • (And taste my mom’s cooking again!)
  • Being able to be with friends and community
  • Getting accepted to my school’s nursing program! 
  • Reaching one year with the person I love
  • Turning twenty in four days! 
  • Continually being blessed with provisions

I know there will constantly be worries and struggles, but it’s always amazing to see that in every dark, gray cloud is a small shimmer of light or rainbow. Right now, it has been more than half a year since 2017 begun, and I just thank God everyday for blessing me with so many opportunities and for allowing me to be where I am.
