A good nights sleep (I list that a lot, but sleep is such a beautiful thing)
A good church that really pours its resources into equipping, discipling, and building its people up in Christ.
A job. It may be extremely frustrating some days, but it is a good job.
My roommate, I don't think I could have asked for a better one.
God's faithfulness. I'll never understand why He continues to draw, convict, and grow me when I am such a terrible daughter.

A couple of people here I've been able to get to know
Opportunities to serve others
Constant reminders of why I'm here, not just to get a degree
Financial provision
comfy bed

Getting the keys to my new apt. earlier than expected so I don't have to rush (Although I still probably will knowing me)

Being tired, even if I can't sleep until after work tomorrow (I HATE going through the day, but, the reward is a deep.... peaceful, almost comatose sleep)

My belly is full, even if I feel like I may have a very mild case of food poisoning likely from eating fast food today.

I have some money in the bank (Not a lot, but its more than some.)

Roof over my head.

1. An apartment where I finally feel safe and relaxed, my first home.
2. Internet friends all over the world who make my life infinitely better
3. Being able to wake up every day and see possibilities
4. My two healthy, adorable cats
5. The opportunity to go to university and college.

1. A job I love with kids who love me
2. A home that really feels like home
3. God provides for my needs daily. There have been moments of anxiety, but I've always been able to make rent and keep food in my fridge
4. FRiends I love who love me and show it every day in their actions. I only hope I give them as much as they give me
5. My health. I may have my bad days but I'm still worlds better than I was just a few years ago.

God is good :)

1. A God who is faithful. I've struggled the hardest in the last couple of months that I've ever had to struggle in my faith. But His Spirit convicted me and drew me back to Him. I am awestruck by His patience with me.
2. Friends who will share with me their own struggles so I know I'm not alone.
3. People who pray for me.
4. The Bible. Food for a hungry soul.
5. Chocolate. Thats not a religious thing. I just really love chocolate.

1. I get to see my beautiful boys tomorrow

2. While I was typing that, my WhatsApp service somehow got extended for another year without me paying any money (and now I'm scratching my head wondering why)

3. N has made *so* much progress in the last couple of months. I really cannot believe how he's grown and changed so quickly. I've never seen anything like it.

4. I have wonderful friends in my life who I love very much

5. Weekends off. 'Nuff said.

Wellll... I should do this because I'm a churl and bitter.

  • Good health. (Because I'm a wimp and would probably be insufferable if I was chronically ill or disabled)
  • Safe. (Because I'm a wimp and would probably be bitter if I was in a tough living condition)
  • Working. (Because I'm a wimp and actually was rather irksome when I was having trouble with my consulting work and not getting paid.)
  • A church that isn't attitude-y or aloof. (Because I'm judgmental and would be rather harsh if the folks there weren't down to earth)
  • A patient God. (Because I'm everything awful that I wrote up above and more)

I needed this today.

1. An apartment that is problem-free (so far)
2. Safe journey across the island
3. Beautiful mountains and forests around my home
4. The opportunity to start my teaching career here
5. Supportive parents
