always thankful.

Every day I am thankful.

I know that I don't say it enough, perhaps don't even think it enough, but at some point every day it crosses my mind. Whether it's my morning run when I have time to collect thoughts, a hot shower where the sound of water calms my day or when I sit down and say our blessings with my children.

Every day I am thankful.

I have been blessed with a beautiful family. The kind of beauty that starts on the inside, in the heart and in the soul. The kind of beauty that is sewn together with love, thoughtfulness, hope, passion, selflessness and compassion. These are traits that have trickled down from our parents, shed light on our lives and now I see these traits in my children. I am blessed to be such a part of an amazing family.

I have been blessed with a husband who has stood by my side, in good times and bad. A husband who has always been my friend and my soul mate. We are blessed to have been together for eleven years and I can foresee many many years ahead on our journey. We are happy and in loved. I am thankful everyday.

I have been blessed with a wonderful home, food to fill our table and a healthy body that I value and challenge daily. I am grateful that this body carried me over the finish line of my race this morning. I couldn't help but tear up when I ran side by side with a man in a wheel chair. We are all blessed in different ways and we should all be grateful for what we have in life.

I could go on and on for what I am thankful for, but I wanted to also mention that I am thankful for you. For each and every one of my readers. I know that I don't say it, I know that I don't write it, but please know every day I am thankful. This little blog of mine has allowed me to meet some amazing people and I value those friendships and relationships that have formed and are being formed. I am thankful for opportunities that have come about because of my blog.

I hope you enjoy this day. I hope that you are able to spend it with the ones you love.

Happy Thanksgiving
