Five years ago if you explained what my life would look like today, I wouldn't have believed you! Life (so far) has turned out very differently than I ever expected. But at the same time, I am so thankful.

I was thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for. I really am so blessed. I serve a great God who is kinder to me than I deserve. Why am I often so ungrateful? Why do I complain and grumble about my situation when I should be shouting out praises for his goodness toward me.

I'm glad for Thanksgiving, the small reminder of me to reflect on all I have to be thankful for. Hopefully the memory of turkey and pumpkin pie will tide me over until next year.

Bucca and random thoughts...

I went out to dinner with some friends the other night and we had an interesting conversation on the way home. We were talking about what to look for in a guy. I've been thinking a lot about what really matters to me. I think my perspective is changing a little bit the older I get. Because I see how hard it is to find a guy who genuinely treats a woman the way a woman should be treated.

I never thought of this before, but a godly woman should be treated like a gem, because she is. There are so many wonderful women and the guys are not treating them with the huge amount of respect they deserve. How a guy treats a girl is much more important than I ever thought.

Something is seriously wrong with the way that Christian men and Christian women interact these days, and I pray God will give me the wisdom and discernment to find a man who is a real man. It's not as easy it seems.
