Thankful Thursday

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away??
Where did the time go?

With the holiday season fast approaching, I always starting thinking more about all the things I'm so grateful for to have in my life.

A week ago today, I mentioned how I joined up with Amanda (my Influence Conference roomie) for #30daysofthanksgiving. So if you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you have been seeing all the little (peanut butter!!) and big (rights to vote!!) things I'm thankful for.

Lately, all the things I've wanted in life seem to be falling into place:

I got engaged to the man of my dreams and couldn't be happier about it.
I have a great job and the opportunities are opening up.
I have an amazing group of friends - people that I feel proud and so incredibly appreciative of their presence in my life.
I have a big, dsyfunctional (in the best way), crazy family I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.
I am mentally, physically, emotionally and financially able to do things I love: run, write, read, knit, travel, cook...the list goes on.
I have found Jesus and a community of believers that feed my soul daily.

It's all pretty amazing.

What else could a girl want?

Maybe this seems like too simple of a 'thankful' post.
Maybe you think that I'm gloating.
I'm not.

From thee bottom of my heart- I'm just incredibly happy and really sincerely grateful for all the good things in my life. I know that I'm where I am today because of hard work, perseverance and a whole lotta grace.

 
So I want to hear what things in your life seem to have just fallen into place perfectly?
What things make you feel like the luckiest girl/guy in the world?
