I’m thankful for… Finishing a Half-Marathon: On April 1, 2012, The husband and I ran the “Atlantic City Half Marathon” in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Everything about the race was perfect. From the temperature, Aid-Stations, People cheering loud and to the moment the husband and I crossed the finish line hand in hand. The husband wasn’t originally wasn’t going to run the race, but the week of the race he decided to surprise me & sign up. It was the sweetest thing, and will forever mean the world to me.
I’m thankful for… Living in Many Places: I never thought at 23 years of age, I would’ve already lived in three other places besides Pennsylvania (North Carolina, Virginia & now Kuwait). The husband and I have met so many wonderful people throughout our journey so far in life, and I couldn’t be more thankful for that. We’ve realized who our true friends were, and who weren’t. We’ve been able to see parts of the world that not many people have.
I’m thankful for… Facebook/Yahoo/Internet: I never would’ve thought for a second these three things would’ve been on any list of things to be thankful for. Facebook has given me a chance to reconnect with old friends, and stay in contact with the ones that matter while we are overseas. Yahoo has made it so easy for my family & I to write e-mails back n fourth daily, and the Internet has made it easy to pay bills online, meet all of you wonderful bloggers, and use it for every day needs.
I’m thankful for… The hard times: Because without the hard times, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I feel as if they’ve only made me stronger & wiser.
I’m thankful for… Accomplishing Goals: I’m very thankful for everything I have accomplished in life. Sure I haven’t gotten a degree, which is on my list of things to do once our Greece vacation is over. Sure I haven’t climbed Mt. Everest, but the other things in life that I have done, I’m thankful for. I thrive on having goals, and once they are achieved, It’s the most amazing feeling in the world.
I’m thankful for… TODAY: This is the biggest thing I’m thankful for. Knowing that I have been blessed with another day to live is such a wonderful feeling. You hear more and more horrible stories these days in regards to shootings, car accidents, and suicides. It breaks my heart for the victims loved ones. I could never imagine waking up and finding out that someone so dear to me has passed away. I wish other people would realize that, and not take life for granite. I wish people would be more generous & kind to strangers. So for today, just take a quick second to think about your life, and smile. Smile because you are standing where you are, and have the friends/family/career that you do :).
