today's ten on tuesday was a list of 10 things. i'm diverting from that route, and will just give thanks in general for the many blessings in my life. i am very thankful to God for sustaining me and allowing my faith to become deeper. it has not been an easy year, but He's put people in my life who never hesitate to tell me what i mean to them and that they love me. small words that have a huge impact.
