for today

My friend Dawn tweeted today about what she was thankful for. This nudged me to not just go about my business (which happened to be getting dinner - pretty important!) but to stop and take a moment to be thankful.

I AM thankful! I'm especially thankful for the grilled cheese and tomato soup last night, and how it warmed me up after getting home. I'm thankful for home - as my friend Debi says, "I'm thankful for a warm home on a cold night." I agree. I'm thankful for all the awesome people God has put in my life, or maybe that He's put me in theirs: my awesome youth pastor, our new pastor at church, the cool people I teach with, my "always" friends, like Beth. We don't talk all the time, but I know we are tight, no matter what. For my great family, especially in times like this.

Just wanted to unwrap some of the gifts I've been given, and remind myself what a great life I have.

Thanks God.


  1. awww...so awesome, Kerri. It does feel good to be thankful, huh?

  2. I love it Kerri (especially the grilled cheese... yum)! When I was writing about the gift I unwrapped this morning I came really close to writing about food (ice cream).

    I'm not sure if you knew I blogged but I just wanted to say that I linked to you a few posts ago :)
