Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h


Down below are a few of my favorite photos from our trip.  I can't below how fast that week went.  I mean, I knew it would, but still.  We had waited and planned for it for months and it came and went like the blink of an eye.  Still, it was a blast.  We did the Airbnb, so we had a place to ourselves, and our own bedrooms and bathrooms, much more comfortable then one or two hotel rooms, for sure.  We went sledding and had some bumps and bruises.  Snowboarding, which was a lot harder then most of us thought it would be and I think we were all thankful to be able to get a go at it, two days, even though it was exhausting.  My dad was a natural of course, but the rest of us took a while to get down the bunny hill.  At the end of the second day, the last three laps down the hill were a blast.  Not to mention both days were beautiful and hot.  As hot as it can be when there's snow on the ground.  
We took a trip to Sedona, which was also so fun and gorgeous.  We had lunch there, went off-roading, went on a small hike, and had caramel covered apples...  HIGHLIGHT of the whole trip! ;) 
I read two books and we finished the new A Serious of Unfortunate Events Netflix serious.  In all it was just fun to hang out, relax, go on a few adventures, and have school and work off.
It was a great trip and one that I will forever be thankful that we were able to go on.
