I've Been Tagged!

To do a Thanksgiving post :) #ThankfulFor
Here are 15 things I'm thankful for. Obviously God, my salvation, my family, these all things I'm probably the most thankful for, and food and a car and friends and such, but those things are all kind of no brainers. Things I thank God for everyday. And I think I should be more thankful for other things too, my friend Anna blogged a quote one time that said something that made me really think. It went something along the lines (I'm paraphrasing) of this. What if we woke up tomorrow and the only things around us were the things we thanked God for the day before? Powerful, eh? I will be first to admit my heart is not nearly as thankful as it should be. I'm not saying I'm ungrateful, but I could definitely make a much greater effort. 
So on to my 15 thankful things :)
1. My job. It's pretty awesome, and I'm very thankful I have this opportunity, to make mula while doing something I love. Plus my co-workers are pretty fun :D And my teacher is like the best :D
2. Having my license. It will have a been a year, come December. I've been able to do so many cool things since I started driving, and I'm very thankful that I have my license. 
3. My fluffy white petticoat. I still haven't shown ya'll yet, but I will soon, and believe me, you will LOVE it too!!! :D I'm also thankful for family members who buy things for me :)
4. My carpal tunnel brace. This has been a very helpful tool for me, and has decreased the pain and swelling a lot.
5. The fabric stash (and zipper stash, and button stash, and lace and ribbon stash, and thread stash) I received from Mimi and Poppy's friend. 
6. Photoshop, because I was able to make fabulous glitter font. (Notice the new header and signature?? Glitter baby!) And I'm also thankful for all the computer techs at my house because they can help me do things I can't figure out, like restarting my computer, restarting the wifi and installing new fonts :)
7. Dansko's and orthopedic insoles. Life savers. Or rather feet savers.
8. I know I said family members were no brainers, but I have to say Grandparents because I'm very thankful for my grandparents.
9. My tablet. It's very useful to me, and I'm thankful for it all and all I can do with it.
10. Dancing :) I'm thankful that I'm able to dance (like physically able, like my legs work and stuff), and that I have opportunities to do so. Such as the ECD we do every other Thursday night, and the swing dancing in Winston Salem. And I'm thankful that a lot of my friends enjoy dancing and that they are willing to teach me to (*Bascha and Abe*).
11. My voice lessons. I am so, so, thankful for my voice lessons. My voice teacher and his wife are amazing too. :D :D :D :D :D :D 
12. Blogs. All of you are so inspiring. You inspire me in a spiritual sense, in a fashion sense, in a food sense, ya'll are just so cool :)
13. My camera. Well it's actually my Mom's, but I've kind of stolen it in a way because I use it and carry it around with me. 
14. Our church. I tell people going to Christ Fellowship is one of the best things that's ever happened in my life. 
15. I would say cold pizza, since I just ate some, but I don't think that's probably the best way to end this post. So I'll make it headscarves instead. They are so useful, and they're cute. And they look vintage. So yes, I'm very thankful for headscarves.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!! I was tagged by the lovely Ruth, of Sewing Room Tales, and Ruth's Random Ramblings.  Follow both blogs if you will, I assure you that you won't regret it :) She's such an encouragement. :D I love you Ruth! 
And since it's a tag, I'll tag in return. I'm tagging Callan, since my other blogging friend Olivia already did a thankful post :) I'm not sure that Callan will get to it, since this is Thanksgiving day, but it would be nice if you did a post Callan :)
