So I am doing one large post of 30 Days of Thanks since Monday and Tuesday went by so quickly! I am so grateful for Ryann to have created this idea since I try really hard to be grateful especially in prayer and sometimes when you get started your list goes on forever.

I guess this could be called being thankful for living in North Carolina but I am thankful for the change in season. Fall is a time of beauty and I love strolling around campus or taking a drive to see all the changing leaves. The colors that occur naturally are gorgeous and a reminder that while the plants are slowly dying off they produce some of the most beautiful moments. I know that sounds really weird but I would be so sad if I lived in a place where there was no distinct change in the leaves. I mean who doesn't love tossing leaves in the air or jumping on a pile of them, or just crunching leaves under your riding boots.
I am part of a women's small group through my church and I love all the girls. While I loved my previous group in the Spring that included one of my sorority sisters this group is a multi-generational group which includes a lot of various perspectives. Sometimes on Mondays after work I would rather put on my pjs but every time I leave small group I feel so refreshed and blessed and know that it is a great place of renewal and learning. Plus, we are having a movie night with Carolina style BBQ next week so really what is not to love?

There really are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for PBX over the past 5+ years. I have grown so much in my faith and gained hundreds of friends I call my sisters. I am blessed to be one of the advisers this year so to continue to watch my chapter grow is one of the best feelings. I can say that PBX helped me to my current job through teaching me that I love service as well as providing me with the opportunity to take on two leadership roles. I am thankful for all those I have met through PBX and all the sisters that are forever friends especially the ones that have made the transition to the real world smoothly!
What are you thankful for?
