I’ve been noticing others have been blogging their thanksgivings on these Thursdays. I like it.
I think overall a heart full of gratitude is a heart that moves towards the right things. I don’t want to be one who dwells in self-pity, insecurity or jealously. Rather, I want my life to be marked by a tendency towards reflection, thankfulness, and simply relishing life’s special moments.
So here are a few thankfuls on my list today:
I did it. After all my moaning and complaining, I shook myself free of procrastination and wrote my OB/GYN. I have to say that I am really proud of myself for FINALLY doing it. I might have also felt a tad bit guilty for venting my frustrations to you all too last night!!! It definitely spurred me on to take care of it.
I ran today!!!!! WOW! I am thankful for that. I haven’t run a block in almost 3 years…but today, I was sooo stressed after work. Tension had seized my body and I just knew I needed to do something about it. Something BIG…so, I told my husband that dinner was on hold and that a family run with our furbaby was in order! Success. I ran the whole way. Over a mile! Go with me here…I know, for all you super in shape ladies out there…that is nothing, a joke. For me, it was a milestone. I am so intimidated by those that regularly hit the pavement. I don’t understand how they do it. But today, I needed it. Needed its vigor to calm my frayed nerves. I am so very proud of myself and thankful I endured. Sometimes its the small victories in life that count.
And how about this picture. I am so thankful for cameras that allow us to capture the beauty and essence of a moment in time. So grateful to share such wondrous places with my husband. This was a beach we went to this past weekend on a little surprise getaway he had planned. Beyond perfect, beyond blessed.
Now for some wine, a roast, some creamed spinach and a little of our favorite programming.
