{Thanks} Living, September Edition

I have so much to be thankful for this month.

I am so thankful that my best friend had a birthday at the beginning of September.
Her birthday package made it to her front doorstep on her actual birthday! :]
I am so thankful for her friendship, even when she lives halfway across the country.

I am thankful for my husband.
He's my best friend.
I'm thankful that we have a lot of fun together...
at Cardinals games!

I am also thankful that my husband knew just what I needed to cheer me up
after a dentist appointment.

I am thankful for the ability to memorize God's Word. 
I am thankful for the conviction to actually do it.
And I'm thankful for blog/IG friends to help keep me accountable.

I am thankful for more Cardinals baseball games.
I'm also thankful for beautiful weather and skies.

I am thankful for the cooler weather,
for not having to keep the AC running
for open windows {they've been open for 2 1/2 weeks now}.

I am thankful for small towns looking after the farmers!

I am thankful for gorgeous sunsets.

I am thankful that my Momma came up this past weekend to watch my husband play in the worship band at church.  
I am thankful that my husband was the one to invite her {and my dad...he just couldn't make it this time}.
I am thankful that my Daddy allowed her to come up and craft all weekend with me.

I am thankful for the many things my Momma has taught me this weekend.
Like crocheting this scarf.

...and making this ribbon trees for Christmas!

I am thankful that God has blessed me with the people that I need in my life right this instant.  He's given us a great small group to serve Him with.
He's given me refreshing weekends so that I may be able to rest and serve Him in the new week.  He's blessed me abundantly.  
I am so thankful.

What are you thankful for?
