I would first like to apologize because last night I feel asleep and did not have the opportunity to write. I was thankful, you already knew that, but I didn't get the chance to write it for you all to see. You all know how much I love thanksgiving (read previous post) and so it is a given that I would be thankful for thanksgiving break. After being a away for 6 weeks, it was such a good feeling to return home for five days. Five was not long enough though. It was like a tease for Christmas break, which by the way starts in a little over 2 weeks. Isn't that awesome!!! I am SOOOOO ready! I just want to get caught up on rest and really get to spend time with my mom and dad. They are so busy this time of year, I am thankful for there strength and the sacrifices they make to provide me with such a great life, so christmas break will go by just as fast, but it will be a little longer allowing for a little more time. I love everything about Stuttgart during this time of year. The ducks, the food, the people, the festival, and so much more make it a great week. I love the business and people that it brings to our small town. The Chamber and it's crew did a great job making it a success week. We are thankful for all you do!
I can do this... 7 days of class and then finals. I can do this!!!
I loved getting to spend time with my friends, see familiar faces, meet people that love my blog, and spend time with my family also. It was a great week and I find myself thinking about this time last week. I was so excited to be going home. It is so bittersweet to think about it... I find myself wanting to relive thanksgiving break... is that bad? This of course is a whole adjustment and I am learning to find a balance between my home here and my home there. I know I will find it and when I do I will be so thankful for it. This break has given me great memories, good laughs, and life lessons. I mean it even has THANKS in the title. There is no way to avoid being thankful. Until I return home, I will find joy in this home and will be thankful of course. I will find a way to feel the christmas cheer. I will find a way to study for finals. I will find a way to make it home again and love/give thanks for the whole process all over again. I am so blessed and even though at times I feel stressed, it is so great to look back at things like thanksgiving break because they remind me how important it is to be thankful.
Pray that I can finish this semester strong. Before we know it, I will be writing about coming home! Isn't this time of year exciting? Thankful for this break and this season... I wouldn't want to spend it with anything or anyone else! Thankful comes easy when you notice the blessings right in front of you... oh how it puts a smile on my face!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
