Life! I woke up today feeling like I was on top of the world!!! And as I'm winding down tonight, I think about so many things that have happened in my day and I am thankful! I meet with my "little" today for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and I'm thankful for the opportunity to give back to this little girl in a positive way, the same way many people gave to me!!! I read this blog about a baby girl named Harper and I see the outpouring of love and hope and encouragement for her and her family from friends, family, and complete strangers and I'm thankful this world still has those kind of people in it. I'm also thankful for the amazing faith in God that her parents show! I talked to my friend Jamie today and she told me about her future plans and goals and how she is going to achieve them, and I'm thankful that I'm blessed with such a wonderful, motivated best friend. I called my sister today and asked how the baby was growing and I'm thankful that some wonderful little boy will get to have the greatest mom EVER! I asked my dad today what color he painted the somewhat expensive birdhouse I bought him for Christmas and when he told me the many colors I laughed and I'm thankful that I have such a funny man for a father!!! I talked to my friend Andrea today who found out this weekend she is having a little girl and I'm thankful that I will be able to buy little boys clothes AND little girls clothes. I'm currently sitting on my couch listening to my dogs play and watching HGTV and I'm thankful that I have a house, a warm bed and my wonderful boyfriend working in home office.
I am thankful that everything don't always go my way, that sometimes the lights always turn red when I get there, that I sometimes spill my breakfast on me in the car while I'm rushing to work, that for some reason our new puppy can't play with his toys unless you're playing with them too, and I'm thankful that I have people who actually read this blog.........
I'm thankful for the opportunity to BE thankful! I sometimes forget how blessed I am to be surrounded on a daily basis by such amazing things, people and moments that I encounter. I'm thankful that I have someone to thank for my life!!! I think you get the point. I haven't been feeling like myself lately and today I woke up remember what it was like to feel that again and I'm thankful.
I hope you can stop from time to time and remember while your thankful, you'll enjoy it, I promise.
