Good Morning Y’all! For all of you whose day didn’t start out on the right foot, just remind yourself that your more than half way through the week and tomorrow is Friday! Feeling better already huh? 🙂
Since it’s Thursday, that brings us to another addition of “I am Thankful For…”. I was so happy to hear how many of you were planning to link up today. I truly do believe it’s important to take at least one day throughout the week to really gather your thoughts, and express who or what may have had some sort of impact on your life. With that being said, let’s get started shall we :).
I’m Thankful For… Everyone I know remaining safe while Hurricane Sandy ripped through the East Coast causing devastating damage. My heart breaks and bleeds for those beautiful people who were affected. No one deserves to lose their valuables, home, and especially their lives. My thoughts are prayers are continuously with the victims. (I also wanted to make it a point to thank all of those apart of the rescue time, firefighters & individuals who have donated their time during this chaos.)
I’m Thankful For… Being alive. Going off of my above “I’m Thankful For…”, you just never k now when your precious life could be taken from you. Moments like this is always a time I reflect on my life. A moment when I ask myself “Did you accomplish what you’ve wanted too in life so far? When was the last time you told your love ones that you loved them?”.
I’m Thankful For… (a happy one) My Breakfast. No it wasn’t a smoothie, eggs or even overnight oats. This morning I woke up with a strong craving for gnocchi. Random right? Well I cooked a serving of gnocchi with 1 teaspoon cinnamon & 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. After it was done cooking, I mashed the gnocchi with 1 frozen banana microwaved for 30 seconds & 2 tablespoons peanut butter. Talk about one delicious & filling meal 🙂
Oh, and of course I can’t forget to share my Foodie Penpal goodies. This month I was lucky enough to be matched with a woman named Erin. Although we didn’t get to know one another too much, I can tell you she is a sweetheart. Erin took time out of her day to read my blog. She sent me a bag of candy corn (did I really complain that much about it not being existent out here? haha) & other amazing treats.
Thank you so much Erin! I can hardly wait to make those Gingerbread Pancakes & of course the Olive Oil Dip :).
