10 more ...

Continuing the thankful theme for the rest of the week. I feel like I should throw in here that there are hundreds (possibly millions?) of others that I am thankful for that are not on my blog roll. I'm a blessed little lady, that's fo sho.

Here are 10 more people I am thankful for!
  1. Chandra - I am thankful for all of her stories about H. I would love to hear a conversation between H. and Sophie. They are both so literal, it would either be super dry or hysterical. Probably both. Chandra, I wish we'd gotten to hang out more at HU, but I'm so thankful for our friendship now!
  2. Dallas - I am thankful for the inspiration! Dallas writes like Jenny McCarthy (without the bad words) and has made me laugh out loud at the computer on more than one occasion. My hubby can always tell if I am reading her blog because I am either laughing or nodding my head. She is a mother of 2 girls very close together and she gets it.
  3. Danielle - I am thankful that I got to sing on the praise team with Danielle. We were the red team? Can't remember, but I had the pleasure of singing with her once or twice a month. She has such a clear voice and she could even make our little alto part sound melodic. :-) I'm glad she chooses to use her talent to praise!
  4. Deborah - I am thankful that Deborah has lived up to everyone's expectations. At HU, she had a reputation for grace and kindness (deservedly so). She is now a wife and mother who loves her family whole-heartedly, but still loves Christ more. Now THAT'S a compliment!
  5. Elizabeth - I am thankful for Elizabeth's creativity. You should see the frames she made for each of her students at pre-school this year! She was my suite-mate Sophomore year and made me laugh all the time. I am also thankful that she was such a good sport through-out all the drama that year! heh heh
  6. Eric and Rebecca - If you know them, then you know what I am thankful for! Their beautiful twins were born at 29 weeks. I am so thankful that you would never know what those girls went through to look at them now! I am also thankful that Eric found someone so terrific to marry.
  7. Gina - Oh, stars, I am thankful for everything about this girl! We met at Student Impact when we were lowly freshmen and were pretty much inseparable after that. She married a wonderful person and has 2 gorgeous little ones and one on the way. I love her so much but even more than that, I just really really like her. Almost all of my fun memories from college involve her.
  8. Hannah - I am thankful that she moved to Jonesboro. She is a very talented seamstress. I hope she teaches me to quilt this summer! She and Brandon made an immediate connection here and we love them. I'm also thankful that we sat together at girl's night out last night. She kept our entire table in stitches!
  9. Jamie - I am thankful that Jamie is so giving. Jamie's favorite quote is, "here, take it!" or "here, just use mine!" She organizes monthly get togethers and is very enthusiastic. And, she totally wins the awesome mommy award. Her twins are precious! Oh, and I am thankful that we worked together the summer of '94. I never would have survived it without her!
  10. Jen - I am thankful to be able to keep up with her through blogging. When she was growing up, I always said that I would like to have little girls that looked and acted just like her. I am so proud of the wife and mother she has become, but every now and then I will picture that adorable little girl that I loved so much.

Wow! What an undeserved honor. Thank you so much for your sweet words.

That reminded me that I need to spend more time thanking God for specific things about people.

Gina Savage said...

This is such a great idea. You inspire me to be a better person. I love that we can stay connected know matter how long it is between visits or phone calls. Thanks for making my day! Miss ya!

Chandra said...

Thanks for the sweet words! I wish we had hung out more at Harding, too, but I kind of feel like I've known you forever anyway thanks to your blog!:)Speaking of H and Sophie having an intellectual conversation, here's how H's last preschool conversation went with his friend Maddie:
H: 'Are you coming to see me on an airplane?'
M: 'I want to bring you a banana.'
H: 'Ooooh, I love bananas.'
Yep, I bet it would go something like that.

Thanks, it is wonderful to hear someone say kind words about you. It truly made my day. You are a good friend and I am glad I can call you friend.

Thank you, Danna! I really enjoyed visiting with you Tuesday night! You are so much fun. And, Will thinks Sophie is his girlfriend. How cute! I am so blessed to have met you!
