I’ve had an exciting and busy last two weeks so I’m here today to share in my thankfulness and blessings. Sometimes it’s something as simple as a smile, a gift, or an expression of love that leaves me filled with gratitude. This last week is an extraodinary example of that so here’s my recollection with Lizzi and her co-hosts.
I’m thankful for my ability to put my thoughts into words. I may not be able to process changes right away but I can always write things down or talk them through. I’m teaching my oldest son that this is good therapy for him too. I’ve been experimenting with creating memes and word pictures. I was lucky enough that the wonderful Babies Bloodhounds and Booze featured me with some funny folks on the web not once but twice! I’m so grateful to her, her talent, and that she thinks my Memes are funny.
I’m thankful for the days when I feel like my ego’s bruised I find a positive quote, message, or comment about how something I wrote made a difference. I read and cherish those moments and I’m feeling inspired again.
I’m thankful that I can lose myself in a good book no matter what stressful things come up into my life. Taking time to put my feet up and sail away into a new adventure is always the cure for what ails me.
I’m thankful for living in Canada and all the beauty I get to see every day. I take walks daily and I go to the river with my kids and we perfect the fine art of skipping stones. Or throw sticks in the water and watch them race down the current.
I’m thankful for taming my laundry beast (saying borrowed from Meaning of Me) who understands my struggle with laundry. Today I celebrated washing, folding, and putting away six loads of laundry! I tend to get overwhelmed with five just sitting there mocking me, so this is a huge thankful brag.
I’m thankful for my bravery and I invited some potential clients to discuss my Beach Body business. I seek out people who show interest but this time I just went ahead and offered my knowledge after hearing a conversation where an acquaintance was struggling with their health.
I’m thankful for my husband’s career reaching new heights in his company. Last week he won a very prestigious honour and the President presented him with an elite award and there was a celebration. I felt so proud watching my love make his speech thanking me and our son’s for all the sacrifices we’ve made to get him to this position. I’m so happy for his hard working staff and management team. I had invited some relatives to come to the event and that made it even more special.
I’m thankful for the trophy, plaque, flowers and gifts for our kids that were gown to us for my husband’s store leader of the year! His staff is very proud of him and sang him a song of congratulations. All the messages, comments, texts, and phone calls from our family and friends expressing their happiness is so appreciated.
I’m thankful that with the award we get to take a special trip all expenses paid to South Africa! We’ve never been anywhere besides our honeymoon ten years ago so this is a trip of a lifetime and we’re so excited to bless the rains and the sunshine in Africa!
