#thankful4 Wednesday: Travel

Image

I’m grateful for the ability to travel.  Not just in the sense of moving from one location to another, but in the broader sense of experiencing new things in their entirety:  sights, feelings, tastes, sounds, smells… Something about being in a place where I recognize absolutely nothing is extremely exhilarating to me. 

 A lot of people seem to think they need money to “travel,” but if you think about it in the way I just described, there might be somewhere within your own town to “travel” to that you just didn’t know existed!  Just the other day I discovered a new park with a number of beautiful hiking trails right on the outskirts of my town; a ten minute drive away! I felt like I was traveling, even though it probably took less than a gallon of gas to get to this place.  You don’t “need money” to travel; just a sense of adventure and imagination, as well as an appreciation for the simple things – like those I mentioned above.  

What are you thankful for today?

#thankful4 Wednesday: Family Time

So, I don’t have a picture for my post today, because, as the title says, I’m having family time with my parents and siblings who live in another state! (And all I have with me is my good-for-internet-only-laptop..).  I’m so grateful every time I get to see my family, which you don’t really expect to be when you’re 16-18 and so ready to get out of the house. (;

I’m thankful that I’ve been blessed with such a close-knit, loving family, and five wonderful, amazing, talented and smart brothers and sisters.  (; I love them so much!

& I love you all as well,
