- I am grateful that I was raised in a family where I was loved unconditionally and I was so important to my parents; my dad always providing stability, and my mom being super-mom as she coached soccer, led Girl Scouts, and made our home somewhere everyone felt welcome. It wasn’t perfect…or even close to perfect, but I think where there is love, most things can be overcome.
- I am grateful to have met so many wonderful people through blogging, but Anne especially. She is one of the most thoughtful people I know and I feel so luck to have her as a friend and running partner! (Anne…I love, love, love the camera!!!)
- I am grateful for the gratitude challenge. It’s what got me out of bed yesterday…when I started to whine, in my head, about how much I didn’t want to get up (not that it’s really an option), suddenly all of these “grateful” thoughts started popping into my head. It was totally irritating, yet effected the paradigm shift I needed. Yes, I needed a freaking paradigm shift to get out of bed yesterday.
Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.
