30 Thankful Days #6 and #7: Mom and Fellowship

Don't have too much time tonight but still wanted to link up with Dawn over at theGoodlife with 30 Thankful Days.

Thankful day #6:
I spent most of the day playing soccer (we lost in the finals but definitely had an INCREDIBLE season) and ended the day traveling back to good ole Laradise (aka Laramie, WY). Though I had so many things to be thankful for like my team, my coaches, my Kay Arthur study, the one thing that just made my day 1000 times better was talking on the phone with my mom. We didn't talk that long but, man, do I love that women! It was great to hear some encouraging words from someone who has made it very clear that she cares more about my well-being than my grades, athletic success, or flaws. Mom, I can't even explain how much I love you and how much you mean to me.

My mom and little B (one of the kids she watches during the school week)

Thankful #7
Today I just want to simply say I am thankful for fellowship! I spent my afternoon taking a Statistics exam (yuck) but I got through it by thinking about the people I'd get to see when I finished the test. I went straight to an FCA outreach dinner --families in the community host a dinner and all varsity athletes are invited— where a good friend shared about her walk with God. Then I went to a Bible Study where we were studying 2 Peter but had to leave early to go to a prayer date :) where a small group of friends spent devoted their time to pray for me. I definitely felt the love in the room.

You are a blessed woman to have such an awesome mom! I am sure she feels the same about you. :) They really do make life much sweeter don't they. ~
