(A list I actually compiled last December; I stumbled across it again today and decided to share it.)

I'm thankful for:

-Outer space, and all its terrible and beautifulness that declares God's glory over and over again.

-Science. All the wonders and mysteries of how the world is put together. All the little details. The miracles.

-Fantasy books, stories, and all of my favorite authors. Each of them has changed my life a little bit.

-My dear sisters and their husbands for being such awesome role models and for always encouraging me to be the best that I can be.

-God, for being Him. Enough said. All the amazing things He does I wouldn't be able to list right here.

-Food. Vegetables. Forests where you can pick food right off the path and eat it.

-Music. The bands that have gotten me through rough times.

-The fact that I get to be in a band and travel all over the country. I can't even express how cool it is that I get to do that.

-That God always gives me what I need.

-Basically everyone I have ever met or had a conversation with. I wouldn't be who I am today without all the other people who got me here.

-Coffee, tea, and fruit smoothies.


-Sharing. Seriously, that verse of “Mourn with those who mourn and rejoice with those who rejoice” serves to make life SO MUCH more awesome.

-The internet.

-Snail mail.



-Spending real life time with real life people.

-Spring time.

-Clean clothes.


-Okapis, giraffes, owls, squids, hedgehogs, turtles, and all the other animals that make life that much more silly or cute or fantastic.

-That the Real World is so much more fantastic than we are often taught to believe.

-That I had the privilege of being homeschooled.

-That even though we are so constantly rebellious and selfish and we screw up constantly, Grace is still amazing. We never run out of second chances, or seventh, or twenty-eighth, or four-hundred-and-ninety-fourth.

-Colors. Pink and green and purple and red and black and white and blue and all the other colors.

-Creativity, and all the wonderful ways that it can be expressed.
