Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a TeenPact Alumni event called "Back To D.C." Words can not describe this experience. I absolutely adored hanging out with some of the most amazing people and drawing closer to God at the same time!! After coming home and contemplating how to blog this adventure, I decided to write a "Thankful List." This is only the beginning..... :)

#1 Thankful for safe travels.

#2 Thankful for no delayed flights.

#3 Thankful for the laughs I had all week.

#4 Thankful that my injuries required zero stitches.

#5 Thankful for Jennifer, Mrs. Brooks, Paige, and Brenn who helped me during that time. 

#6 Thankful for Mrs. Lydia and Sarah who prayed for me and with me. 

#7 Thankful for the brokenness I experienced which allowed me to see areas of my life where I needed to change. 

#8 Thankful to God who is the God of unconditional love and faithfulness.

#9 Thankful to God who revealed to me that I can never be too far from His grace and love.
