In preparation for this post, I looked back over the past three Thanksgiving entries I’ve written on this blog. They were written in 2008, 2009 and 2010. It’s so cool to look back on those to see what was going on in my life and where I am now. A lot has changed since I started this blog over three years ago. Amazing.
All my other Thanksgiving posts were really long, but I think I’m going to keep it simple this year.
I’m thankful for friends, family and everyone else who’s touched my life in some way.
I’m thankful for my church, youth group, college and career group, girls’ Bible study, other girls’ Bible study and other college group.
I’m thankful for my Padres. I love them so very much, even if it was a bad year. We’ve got to get better someday…
I’m thankful for the opportunity to work on a student newspaper and everything that comes with working with other people pretty much all the time. We’ve had some pretty great adventures.
I’m thankful for a God who cares about the little things just as much as the big things in life - I’m so thankful that I can trust Him with everything from getting me to the gas station when I’m really low on gas to life-changing decisions. It’s all in His hands, and He’s been so merciful to me on so many levels.
What do I have that I have not recieved?
I don’t understand how anyone can look at their lives and not see a God working through every moment. I truly have been blessed beyond anything that I deserve; in fact, I don’t deserve any of it. I’m so grateful.
I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I love you all.
The Padres traded Wade LeBlanc today to the Miami Marlins for catcher John Baker.
Pretty exciting stuff, only because I love catchers. Any catcher is a great catcher in my eyes. I love seeing a new one join the team. He will obviously be Nick Hundley’s backup, but still, it’ll be good to have him here in SD. He’s got a career batting average of .277.
Hey everybody. Yeah, I know I haven’t blogged in a long time. Not only is it the offseason, but I have been ridiculously busy with The Telescope and school. Mostly The Telescope. But that’s okay, because it’s been a blast.
I’m really curious about how next season is going to go for the Padres. New General Manager? Okay. Is that going to change anything? Doubtful. Look at who we’ve signed so far: Mark Kotsay, who I thought retired years ago, and a 31-year-old catcher. It looks like the same old, same old to me.
Very interesting. Thoughts on these and all other recent Padres news later!
