I have so much to be thankful for everyday but today I thought I would share some of the things I am especially thankful for this year. It’s been an incredible year and I have had so many amazing experiences. The holiday season and Thanksgiving in particular are times to reflect on the big things and the little things too.
I am so thankful for this man. Not only is he the kindest man I have ever known, but he is also the most supportive. He is my biggest fan and I can’t imagine how dim my life would be without his humor. The Mr. makes me lighter and makes everything better. He has waited for me at the finish line of every race and has helped me be better at being at being myself.
This year the Mr. and I have traveled to some incredible places and have seen first hand GOD’s beautiful creation. I am thankful for my Savior and the beautiful world in which we live.
My parents are wonderful. They are the most selfless human beings and are the best company. The older I have gotten the more my parents have become some of my best friends. I don’t know what I would do without them. They are silly and fun but passionate about living life to the fullest. They have supported me in everything I have ever wanted to do.
Blaine is my sister but more importantly my soul mate. She is a serious diva and drama queen, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s the one I talk to about anything and everything. We text in hashtags and instagram memes and that is quite alright with me.
This dog ya’ll. Long before I met the Mr., I was a lonely single girl adjusting to city life in Atlanta. Chloe Mae got me through some really difficult times. She gave me purpose, kept me happy and helped me fall in love with trial running. When I first moved to Atlanta, I didn’t have a boyfriend or friends but I had Chloe. She is the biggest source of unconditional love and humor anyone could ask for.
I’m thankful for my health. The past couple years have been really hard. I was really sick for over a year and never thought I would be able to run long distances again. Thank goodness for my doctors! Three years ago on Thanksgiving I ran my first race, the Atlanta Half Marathon and last year I started running again after healing. Last Thanksgiving I made my running comeback and went on to PR at the Atlanta Half Marathon. I am thankful to be running again and my health.
Today I’m linking up with Amanda over at Running With Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. Be sure to check out her awesome blog!
What are you thankful for this year?
