  2. These are all wonderful things to be thankful for, Faith!! :D
    By the way, I loved seeing your room! I've always wondered what it looked like. ;)

    1. They are, aren't they?! :D <3
      Aww, thank you! Really? Haha, well there it is. ;) Only it isn't so neat and tidy right now...and my desk now resides against the wall between where I was standing when I took that picture and my chair. ;)

  3. I am thankful for the friends I have who show me true, beautiful, growth in Christ.

    I LOVE YOUR ROOM! When you say NEW room, do you mean you moved or you remodeled?

    1. That's a beautiful blessing that we should always be thankful for. <3

      Thanks, Amy! :) By new room, I mean remodeled. That happened this past spring. ;)
