The One About Thankfulness



Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope this day finds you warm and well and surrounded by loved ones. I always start my Thanksgiving day with the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot; this is a tradition that my dad and I always do together and I cannot imagine my turkey day without it.

This year I have so many things to be thankful for and I just wanted to list a few here for you all to read.

Family:
I am so blessed to have an amazing family and support system around me.

I have the pleasure of living with my mom and I am thankful every day that we are able to be roommates. I am actually sad that in May I will have to move out.

My sisters are probably the most special people in the world to me and I am so thankful that I am blessed with beautiful, hard-working, God-fearing sisters. They have been my rock for the past two years and my heart over-flows with love for them.

I am blessed to have my dad and stepmom who are so supportive and encouraging in everything that I do and I love that I can share my Thanksgiving morning run with my dad.

My grandparents are so special to me and I am blessed beyond words to have such amazing grandparents that I am close with.

I also have the most amazing aunts, uncles and cousins and while I won’t get to see many of them this year I look forward to Christmas when we can spend time together.

And my dogs, they are my family too and I am so very blessed with these sweet little creatures that love me every single day no matter what.

Alex:
God truly blessed me in abundance when He brought you into my life. I am amazed every single day at the person that you are and I am so grateful that you love me and care about me the way that you do. God has taught me so much about His love for me through you and I just thank Him every day that your path crossed mine. I am excited to spend the rest of my life with you.

My job:
I am so very blessed to have such a wonderful job; it may not be my dream job and it has its ups and downs and good days and bad days but that doesn’t change the fact that I am truly thankful for my job. I am able to work with Alzheimer’s patients each day and I love being able to help people.

My church:
For the past 2 years my church home has been one of the biggest blessings in my life and I am so thankful for all the relationships I have made there and the things I have been able to do. My faith is important to me and I am so blessed to have found a place that I love so much, it makes worshiping the Lord each week that much sweeter.

Running:
I couldn’t leave this one out. Running has changed my life in so many ways and I am so blessed that I have the ability to run. The strength and confidence I have from running is beyond me and I am so grateful for this sport and for the people I have met because of it.

I have so many things to be thankful for but these are the most important things to me in my life right now. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and enjoys some rest, good food and fun.

Happy Thanksgiving!
