Better Late Than Never
I am thankful for old money that is still in circulation. I was sad when I had to finally part with my 1995 five dollar bill, which is much prettier than the 2006 one on the bottom of my money totem pole.
I am thankful for a hand to hold when I cross the street in the fog. I'm thankful for foggy days. I'm thankful not foggy days, too.
I'm thankful for this boy. I mean, just look at that face. It just screams adorable.
I'm thankful for being an art major. I'm thankful that I didn't drop out of college and become a hobo on the street. I'm thankful that I'm still here.
I'm thankful for snow. I'm thankful for not snow, but that is summertime weather. When it's wintertime, a nice blanket of white crisp snow that is just begging to be tromped on is just about as much as I can handle. Oh the snow memories I harbor from my childhood!
Oh and also I am thankful for a car to drive. I put the gas in it, but my daddy pays for a lot of the upkeep. He's awesome. I'm also thankful for HIM and he should know it.
I'm thankful for goofy friends to spend time with. That coat is an abomination, but she makes it look good, doesn't she?
I'm thankful for monster burgers to feed his monstrous appetite. 'Nuff said.
I'm thankful for apple pie. You know, my momma won a blue ribbon for hers at least three years in a row at the county fair, so you just know it's the best. You just know. (turkey vent design by yours truly!)
Aaaand I supposed I should mention that I'm also thankful for my mom because she's a sweetheart and everyone who meets her wishes that she was their mom, but how in the world did I get so lucky with not just one but two awesome parental units?
I'm thankful for ski days at Lookout Pass. I'm thankful for TheMechanic (pictured here with the Fajah), and TheKeeper and also I'm thankful for DP even though sometimes she's a huge pain and drives me crazy. Well, actually they are all huge pains who drive me crazy, but that is another story. I'm just thankful they are my siblings and I don't have to share them with anyone because for all their hormones they are a fun bunch of kids to hang out with. And not to mention we are all pretty good looking, huh?
I am thankful for snowmen. And snow forts. And igloos. And snowflakes. And well, just winter in general - even if it makes people forget how to drive.
And last but not least I'm thankful for Jesus. I don't need to describe how awesome he is - because once you know him you just know. I mean, you just do. And pictured here is my tribute to Jonah, who proves that you can mess up royally and try to run away, but God will always be there for you and will always love you no matter what and in more ways than you could ever count to.
I've titled this print "Indigestion." Oh, I crack myself up. I'm thankful for senses of humor. I need to go to bed...
