I’m Thankful

I’ve been kinda quiet this week. Have a lot going on and nothing really on my mind to blog about.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I am so blessed, but I don’t always see it. I have a feeling we all live that way most of the time. There are times it’s easy to see the blessings and other times you are searching for it. I have learned a lot about being content this year.

Day 1: Thankful for my Savior. Thankful that I am saved and forgiven.

Day 2: Thankful for my husband. We’ve been married 17 years. I can’t imagine life without him.

Day 3: This girl. She stole my heart from day 1. She’s silly, she’s kind. She drives me batty like any 12 year old girl can. But I love her!

Day 4: Thankful for my job. No I don’t always want to go, but I’m glad I have one.

Day 5: Thankful for my right to vote!

I missed Day 6 somehow. It was the day of my surgical procedure so we’ll chalk that one up to the shots and stitches. I am however thankful for my health.

Day 7: Thankful for rest days. Even ones mandated by the doctor.

Day 8: I’m thankful for best friends. Life seems to get in the way of us spending much time together, but I’m so thankful for Alisha! This was our first 5k together in 2011. We need a new picture!

How I Got Here

There’s my first week. I love that this is making me focus on my blessings. Not just recite them, but really think about it, see it in front of me. Maybe I won’t take my blessings for granted.

I’d love to see your 30 Days of Thanks! Tag me on Twitter or Instagram with @howmyworldruns, #30daysofthanks and #sssbloggers

What are you thankful for?

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food? Mine is the dressing. We eat cornbread dressing in my family and I love it!

Anyone racing this weekend?

    I have been writing a post for each thankful day, that requires me to write more then just a quick one sentence one. I am really loving this challenge though, to look deeper into the things (and people) who I am really thankful for.

  2. I came across your blog via the TX Women’s Blogger link-up last week, and I’m so glad I did. Your story is such an inspiration, and I’m enjoying catching up a bit on your journey.

  3. I am especially thankful for the same things you said for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 5! My husband and I have also been married for 17 years, and I can’t imagine my life without him either!

    I’m not really big on any Thanksgiving foods, but if I had to pick one, it would be my mom’s dressing. It’s the only dressing I’ve ever had that I actually liked. She made it with her homemade cornbread and it was delicious!

Tell me what you think!
