Last year I joined in the daily thankfulness on facebook. This year, I’m going to modify it and do a weekly thankful blog post. (Thanks to Kristy for the idea!) I have SO MUCH to be thankful for this year!
WEEK 1 – A THANKFUL SPIRIT
Day 1 – I’m thankful for my husband. Eric is the most humble, honorable, smart, dedicated and loving man that I have ever known. We have been married for 5 years last summer, going on 5 and a half years. He makes my life so amazing!
Day 2 – I am SO INCREDIBLY thankful for my gorgeous daughter, Winter. She has transformed my life in ways I could have never imagined. Seriously, being a mom is hard work, but to see Winter’s sweet face every day, it’s SO WORTH IT! I love that little girl!
Day 3 – I am thankful for this beautiful state I live in. Colorado is so gorgeous. I love the beautiful mountains, the 300+ days per year of sunshine, the fit/active lifestyles, and the dry climate. I wish I were a Colorado native, but I’m a transplant. My daughter is a native, though!! That excites me:)
Day 4 – I’m thankful for fruit. I live and breathe fruits: apples, oranges, peaches, grapes, etc! Life without fruit would be very dull.
Day 5 – I am thankful for the ability to run. I have been a runner for years. Right now my running is not perfect (considering I’m less than a month post-partum). I’m still slow and getting used to running with a stroller….new challenges that I embrace. Some people do not have the ability to run, so I’m grateful I am able to do it!
Day 6 – I’m thankful for my dog, Koda. He is such a sweetie. He warms my heart and makes my days brighter.
Day 7 – I’m thankful for my huge family. I am one of 8 kids, and most of my siblings live in Indiana, but we are starting to spread out more (Indiana, California, Colorado and Nicaragua). I love each one of my siblings dearly. My mom and dad are amazing people and did a fabulous job raising all of us!
