Coffee & Conversation.

I have been so out of the blogging loop for almost the entire month of February. So many things happening. Life has been crazy in every possible way. In the past few weeks I have dealt with tragedy, death, moving, and moving on all while trying to maintain my sanity. It hasn't been easy. Today, I am linking up with Lauren and Kalyn for Coffee and Conversation. You really should go check them up. They are both sweet little southern bloggers from right here in good ole' Alabama!!


Coffee & Conversation

This weeks question:
What are you most thankful for this year?

Wow. That's a loaded question. And the only way I can seem to answer it is by saying that I am thankful for seasons.  I am thankful that there is a time and a place for everything. I am thankful that seasons change. I am thankful for the hurt and the pain, but also for the love and laughter. I am thankful that no season lasts any longer than it should. I am thankful that every season happens just as it should. Life is good, even when it's bad... Those seasons make it all worth it even when it seems like we are at the end of our road. I'm thankful for life, and family and friends. But most of all, I am thankful for my Savior.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 
A time to be born, and a time to die; 
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 
A time to kill, and a time to heal; 
A time to break down, and a time to build up; 
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; 
A time to mourn, and a time to dance; 
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; 
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 
A time to get, and a time to lose; 
A time to keep, and a time to cast away; 
A time to rend, and a time to sew; 
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 
A time to love, and a time to hate; 
A time of war, and a time of peace. 
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Happy Monday, Y'all!
