40 Days of Lent

For Lent this year, I am giving up sodas, but that isn't really that hard for me. So I decided to do something that would be challenging. I'm going to blog for 40 day of things/people I am thankful for. Now, that sounds really easy when you first think about it, but if you group people into "family" and don't seperate them, it shortens the list and makes you think a little harder about all the things you are thankful for. So after a terrible day for me, I was in the worst mood and nothing was bringing me out of it until JD and I went to an Ash Wednesday Service and all was better. I felt renewed and ready for a reflective season of Lent. So for

Day 1,

I am thankful for God. I am so grateful that I have such an awesome God. That each day I am forgiven of all my sins and he listens to everything I have to say. He has given me everything I have and created everything around me. I am thankful for my relationship with God too. I am most thankful that God gave me this...
