Happy Thanksgiving!!

I am thankful for so many things today.

My health and ability to continue to work on living a healthier lifestyle.

My awesome two boys who continue to teach me how to love and live into who we are created to be.

My handsome, hard-working, dependable husband and his willingness to continue to work on our marriage.

Amazing friends, family and community who surround me with love and challenge me to be fully me.

The list could go on and on…….

Today, I also want to tell you that I am thankful for you.

You read my blog.

You listen to my podcast.

You interact with me on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Pinterest.

You encourage me and inspire me.

Today, I am working on focusing on the people around the table, as my friend Sarah has challenged me to do. I would love it if you would join us. Don’t get caught up in the drama or the tension, but focus on being present with people.

Thank you for being YOU. Here’s to a Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and love.

Cheers!

Saying Thanks

I picked up a project this weekend that I really need to finish. I’ve had it on the backburner for a while and it’s time to get it moving again. As I read through my friend Jamie’s words, these really stuck out to me.

No matter what we are going through.

No matter how bad our day is.

No matter how difficult our life is right now.

We can always say thanks for one more day.

Thanks for the reminder, friend!

 

jamie thanks
