Yup, it’s that time again. Another week of Thankful Thursday. A day where you can express the good happening in your life. It doesn’t have to be a huge accomplishment by any means. It can be as small as: I found my favorite nail polish, and for that I’m thankful. So take a seat, and think for a second… What are you thankful for?
I’m Thankful For… Allison over at LifesABowl for sharing her Peanut Butter Pancake recipe. I made them this morning, and let’s just say each bite tasted like Heaven. This girl really knows what she’s doing in the kitchen that’s for sure 🙂
I’m Thankful For… My Body. Even though I feel as if I’ve punished it in a way, it’s never given up on me. I know I over-exercised & under-ate, but that never stopped my body from functioning. It still allowed me to swing my arms in all directions, run the miles I was putting in. Yes, I may be suffering now from the under-eating, but is that my body’s fault? Absolutely not, it’s mine. But you know what… without my body “stopping” my period, I wouldn’t have known I even had a problem.
I’m Thankful For… The knowledge of being grateful and having choices. I was brought up in a home that embraced what being grateful is all about. They taught my brother & I the good from the bad, the right from the wrong. They made us understand that life isn’t handed to you. You have to work for it. There many be times where you just want to throw in the towel, and use the simple excuse “This is too hard”, but knowing that I CAN do this when there are people in other countries that don’t have the chance, it truly makes you want to achieve the task 10 x more. It breaks my heart to see those who live on the streets. Yes some may have put themselves there, but you have to remember that’s not the case for all. Be thankful that you have a house to come home to each & every day. A place where you can get a delicious home cooked meal, and a goodnight’s rest. That’s the thing about life, you never truly know when something can be taken from you.
