Happy Thanksgiving!

I started my morning by joining friends, family and one neighbor to do a turkey trot around the club! Next year I will start earlier and try to get more people involved. It was great to have my friends drive out here to join me!

On Facebook I started late but I did the "things you are thankful for". I figured I'd put them on here too :)

1. I'm thankful for my husband. He's aweseome.

2. I'm thankful for my mom, she always drops whatever she is doing to help me out if I ask her.

3. I'm thankful for my job! Not having it for two weeks reminded me of that 

4. I'm thankful for my health.

5. I'm thankful for my community. I live in a wonderful place. I'm so glad I moved there and the great friends I have made.

6. I'm thankful for my kids. They are my life.11. I'm thankful for lazy Saturday mornings!

7. I'm thankful for my step mom Denise. She taught me many things like embroidery and other crafty things. Gardening, scrapbooking and now running! She's a great mentor to me 

8. I'm thankful I've never been wealthy. While that may sound weird and the opposite of many people's dreams, I've never desired to be rich. I think being able to be "creative" with what money we have/had has made me a better person.

9. I am thankful that Traci introduced me to beautiful sunsets. I never really paid 
attention to them before until one day I saw her run out of the club hall and stand on the porch and marvel at the beautiful sunset. Taking time to enjoy the simple things in life like the sunset with friends or even in a quiet moment by yourself just gazing at the beautiful sky. Ahhh life doesn't get much better than that!

10. I am thankful for Pinterest and all the mom's that come up with great recipes and share them on the internet. Dinner is so much better now 

11. I'm thankful for lazy Saturday mornings!

12. I'm thankful for my buddy Rusty. He is always by my side 

13. I'm thankful for Girl Scouts because that is where I met my great friends Carolyn and Deanna. Can't imagine life without them! 

14. I'm thankful for the website Lose It. 

15. I'm thankful for coffee 

16. I'm thankful for my brothers and their wives and kids, they bring joy into our lives

19. I'm thankful that this old heater in our house still works. ::knocks on wood::
