**What are YOU thankful for today?**


  1. i am thankful for life. x

  2. there is so much to always be thankful for. Even those little things. Great reminder today!

  3. I am finding it hard to be thankful for anything today, which is terrible of me.

    I do marvel and the beauty and positivity of this post though, and thank you for it.


  4. I loved that you are taking all the positive you can from this <3
    You clearly are fighting a really hard battle, and yet, posts like this restore my faith that people do and can recover.
    Keep fighting <3

  5. I didn't get to comment on your last post, but I'm glad you are not letting the negative comments keep you from blogging. So, I'm thankful for your resiliency :) Im also thankful for my mom, family, and life in general. Sometimes when things are not going well its easy to forget about the good things. I love how positive you are being dispute being sick. Sorry you are still not feeling well. xx

  6. Sometimes I realize that I request a lot from God but often fail to just stop and thank Him and praise Him. We are so fortunate to have salvation. Even if He never did anything else it would still be more than enough. But, He willingly blesses us and is always with us.

    I hope you feel better soon!!!

  7. I am thankful that yesterday was Thursday. (LOL).

    Beautiful post, Sarah. Love it when you share.

  8. i love your thankful thursday! life can be so hard and stressful and it's easy to forget to take a step back and think about the good things in our lives and the things we are thankful for <3

    I hope you get feeling better, and I hope you don't let the negativity get you down or discourage you. You have SO many people in your life who love you and want only what's best for you (me included) and there is no room in your life for people who would want otherwise for you. Be gentle with yourself because you ARE worth it!!!!

  9. All great things to be thankful for! :)
