  2. Awesome list. Thanks for putting the time into writing it and posting it here to be a blessing to me.

    You sound like an awesome young woman, one I'd love to get to know someday. Let me know when you are in the market for a handsome and Godly young man, as I've got one available...someday. Just kidding.

    Kind of. ;-)

  3. Ok, that was lame. I shouldn't be posting jokes like that to someone I don't even know. Sorry. Totally uncool.

  4. What a fabulous post - being grateful is lacking in so many these days, young AND old, but I loved your list!

  5. LOL, Sherry ... we will be calling you in a few years ;)

  6. Great post! It is so refreshing to hear from such a grateful and well spoken/written young woman. I know your Mama is so proud :)
