I'm Thankful for Memories

     Memories mean a lot to me, and they are the second thing on my list of things I'm thankful for. For the longest time, I couldn't remember the last time I'd seen my foster sister who turns four tomorrow. I was able to see her yesterday. She was in a carseat, but she was smiling. She said "I love you" and gave me a hug and kiss.

     Later that night, I wrote down every detail I could remember from seeing her. I didn't want to forget. Those memories are good. I needed to do that, but it also hurt.

     Being thankful for those blessings don't always make you feel good, but thanking God for them is always great. That's why I make an effort to see blessings every single day. I've written some of them here at Equals Enough.

    So be thankful for all the little blessings.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
