The Thankful Edition

I am thankful for so many things and consider my life to be blessed in many ways. So here on Thanksgiving is a small list of things I am forever grateful for. Not all inclusive but a few of my favs off the top of my head.

My kids.  Love them so much.  They make me so happy and I love the way just thinking about them makes my hear swell up and want to burst out of my chest.

My husband.  My best friend.  I still remember walking into the bar 7 years ago and telling my friend I wanted that one. I just knew I was going to marry him.  3 months later we were dating and 9 months after that married. 

My parents.  Now that I am a parent I am just beginning to understand how much they did for me growing up.  They were and still are so supportive and always there when I need them.  Thanks Mom and Dad :)

My siblings.  Three of my best friends.  We fought a lot growing up but had a lot of great times too and I have the best memories playing with them when we were kids.  I can't imagine life without them  SO lucky to live so close to two of them.

My family.  Love my big awesome supportive family and that my kids love going to visit different relatives while I get my runs in and I have awesome people to watch them.

My in-laws.  I love that my kids are just as excited to see them even though they don't live as close as my family and we don't see them as often.  They are always loving and welcoming.

My job.  I have worked there for 11 years in January.  Amazing!  I love my job still after all these years.

My car.  I have had my car for 11 years.  Paid off for 8 years.  I am hoping it lasts another two when I have both kids in school and don't have a daycare bill and can afford a new one.

I live in the United States.  Home of the brave, land of the free.  Nuff said

My legs.  I love how many miles they allow my to run.  They are strong, lean and mean. 

Running.  I have found such stress relief and enjoyment in running.  It is my time.  Also a time to socialize and enjoy my competitive streak.  i love pushing myself and seeing how much more and faster I can run.

Happy Thanksgiving
