I am so thankful for the friends in my life who talk to me when my mind runs wild, and cheer me up when my emotions threaten to overwhelm.

I am so thankful that God sent me these two beautiful munchkins to call my own and to learn from and to grow with.

I am so thankful that I live in a country where a woman can take advantage of opportunities and choose what she wants her life to look like.

I hope that as you go through your day today, you will look around and find something to be grateful for. We have a God who can do “exceedingly, abundantly more than we could ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20), but sometimes it takes a little searching to find the good things in life. Enjoy the hunt!

Blessings!

About Shannon Joy

I am a single mother of two incredible munchkins. I pray a lot, work a lot, learn a lot, volunteer a lot and tend to do a lot... I love my life. The past few years have been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs. Thankfully, I have made the choice to see challenges as opportunities and it makes me so much stronger than I ever thought possible. I love to write and paint and feel that being creative is my God-given talent. I am so excited to share my life and experiences with you. Although I am a diamond in the rough, I known that I am being chiseled and hewn by God's grace and my own perseverance. I love comments and feedback, so please send a little love when you can. I will always try to respond personally and in a timely fashion.
