I am nearing the end of the alphabet! And about to begin some tough letters.
Traveling: This activity is definitely among the top of my favorite things to do list. I'm especially grateful for the opportunities I had in Costa Rica & Spain to live with a family and learn about how the people there live and how that reflects their values (and makes me think about Americans' values).
Trust: It feels good to be trusted and to trust--even if it is hard and/or doesn't feel natural.
Tranquility: Sometimes I still think about going to spend a week in the woods a la Thoreau just to see how this feels. An hour here or there isn't quite the same, but I'm still grateful for the feeling when I actually make it a priority.
Tacos, the Taco Stand, trees (especially the ones you can easily climb), traditions, Thanksgiving--and turkey and dressing, toothbrush & toothpaste, Twix, tee shirts, turtles (I liked having them as pets....at least for a day or two), tea, Titus & Timothy, Toyotas (it's so nice to have cars that never have any problems), tank tops, and truth
Transformation: Placing my faith in Christ, learning more about the gospel, and seeking God has absolutely transformed me.
Teachers: I've had some really amazing teachers over the years--one of whom is my Uncle Joe. He challenged us to examine our culture and choices and taught me a lot about the kind of person I want to be. (I just had a Dirty Dancing flashback.)
Teaching: I taught elementary Spanish for a year, and it was such a positive experience. Before that I taught in an after-school/summer program and worked with special needs children and that work helped me learn to be patient and very creative. I especially love being creative with disciplining children.
Trav & Trish: My best friends from law school who are conveniently married to each other. Fortunately I get to see them this weekend. Speaking of the weekend, it's almost here.
