Thankful for… 

friends to pray with and just be with. This has been a tough time for my church family and city, with the loss of Pastor Ty and Terri. (See news story and video here.. goodness, I love my church.)

the inspiration of lives lived without regrets. People who gave and loved wholeheartedly.

goofy fun with neighborhood youngins.
