thankful thursday {link up}


{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Family.  Last week my Aunt and Uncle were in town visiting for their anniversary... and Lance and I were lucky enough to meet up with them for dinner.  I am really close to my family and it's always a treat to get to spend time with them... especially since everyone is out-of-state and I normally only get to see them on holidays or special occasions.

2) Community Group.  I know I've talked about my community group on this blog before... but it bears mentioning again.  I.love.my.community.group.  Because Lance and I don't have any family that lives here in Louisville, our community group is very much our home-away-from-home here.  Our group recently multiplied because of our size, and this past week was our first week as our new group... and we were still 23 members strong... looks like we'll be multiplying again soon:)  We had a lot of new people this past week, and one thing that always warms my heart is when I see new people experience a true sense of family in community... some for the very first time.  It never gets old.

3) Dinner dates.  One of my very dear friends/co-workers is in Louisville this week traveling for work, and I LOVE that I am getting to hang out with her while she is in town.  We were able to meet up for a late dinner last night and will get to hang out again tonight... can't beat it.  Love this girl.

Family is always something to be thankful for!
A community group sounds like something special, too.

Family and friends are great things to be thankful for! I like the idea of a community group. We don't have much family nearby either.
