Thankful for, wrapping up 2016

Dear 2016, 

You threw a lot at me. You tested me. You taught me. You encouraged me. You showed me that it was possible to live fearlessly.

I would not change this year for anything. Thanks for all of the transitions, donuts, friendships, and strength that you revealed. Thanks for showing me another side of the world. Thanks for throwing people in my life that made me feel more loved than ever before. Thanks for the painful nights that taught me that God's power is made perfect in weakness. Thanks for not only letting me fall, but teaching me to get back up. Thank you for yanking me out of my comfort zone.

Thank you, Lord, for all of these life lessons that took place in the last 12 months.
