What Are You Thankful For?

Today is my sweetheart's 37th birthday, and I am sure he is thankful for another year of life.  I, for one, am very thankful for him.  He has inspired me all over again, but not in the way you are thinking!  Two months ago, he decided to ride in the MS-150.  He bought a fancy bike and began training right away.  It got me to thinking about things I am passionate about...things on my own "bucket list."  Soon afterwards I committed to doing my first 5K.

Last night, I got a text from a co-worker that found her husband unresponsive that morning.  She was very scared and shooken up.  Righfully so.  Her last text to me was to make sure I gave my fiance a little more time that day and to make sure that he knew I loved him.  I made sure I told him.  I am thankful for that opportunity.

I might seem to be going all around with this post, but I do have a point.  Here today, I am thankful for three things...I am thankful for passion, love, and time.

I am thankful for my Mom and Dad (who is deceased.)  I am thankful for my son.  I am thankful for my siblings and their children.  I am thankful for all of my family members near and far.  I am thankful for my wonderful friends, especially my close girlfriends who are like extended members of my family!

I am thankful for a great job that I enjoy going to.  I am thankful for my talents and creativity.  I am thankful for my health.  I am thankful for basic things such as food, water, shelter and clothing.  I am just thankful.  It is so easy to fall into a rut about life and things that are happening around you.  I chose to be thankful for the life I have and the people in it!

What are you thankful for?
