    I’m thankful that God brought me back to Augusta. I’m thankful for the shift in priorities that made the move possible in the first place.

    I am more thankful for you…thank you for my coffee…there is something about coffee with my sister that makes it taste even better (and even better had it been in New York…on the subway…going to Central Park…for a walk…)!!!

  3. I like all of that, and I am thankful for you!

    Ok….haven’t been on your blog in a while. Still haven’t looked at your pics…….which is the reason I got on here. However, I was sucked into reading my dear friend’s blogs. Each of which made me even more thankful for you………. For your passion for the creator and his creation, your love for Brent and the kiddos, your HILARIOUS sense of humor that I so get…..and was dying laughing at your Starbucks “mishap”………….just grateful that God saw fit to mesh our hearts together as friends. And shoot……I think you’ve even inspired me to start my own blog. Umm…….this comment is stinkin’ long and has turned into and email for crying out loud!! Love you deeply sweet friend!
