From Stacy: Reflecting over the last year I am so incredibly grateful for the people in my life. I have a wonderful husband whom I love dearly, two fantastically wonderful children that seem to be growing at an incredible rate. I am thankful for my dear friends and family who put up with me and my short comings. I am thankful that we live close to part of our family and that we can enjoy being together more often. I am thankful for the 12 incredible people that God has brought to the Fellows Program this year as well as for our church who has been beyond supportive in our ministry efforts. I am thankful for Holly and her commitment to excellence in all that she does and for her sweet husband who supports and encourages her in her gifts. I am thankful for my photography clients whom I now would call friends and for this blog and how it has been a great success in helping support small businesses in the Birmingham area. God has been so incredibly gracious to us and to Him I am eternally grateful.
From Holly: Recent back pain provided a rude reminder about how much I take for granted. When I cannot stand up straight, bend over to do laundry or stand to wash the dishes, I realize there are so many “everyday” things that I can and should be thankful for. I also have food allergies, and this has taught me to be grateful for all the wonderful foods I CAN eat instead of what I cannot eat. This Thanksgiving I am learning to be grateful to God for the “everyday” things like being able to walk and eat as well as the major things like the wonderful and supportive husband I have. I am also thankful for my sweet mom who is always there to be “creative director” and friend, for my loving and fun dad who is my handy helper on crafts and for my sister who is always fun to hang out with and is an constant example to me of a godly woman. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with Stacy on the Birmingham Bride and thankful to all those who read our blog. I am most thankful to my Savior who died on the cross for my sins.
