The Ultimate Thankful Thursday.

  • Non-stop laughter.
  • Full on family dinners.
  • Eating until you're full. And then some.
  • Gratitude.
  • Road Trips.
  • This verse: "If you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, your life will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.  I will always show you were to go.  I will give you a full life in the emptiest of places- firm muscles, strong bones."  Isaiah 58:10-11.
  • The fact that there are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.
  • A clean inbox.
  • Down time.
  • Staff Lunches.
  • A good leisure read.
  • Beautiful weather.
  • Short winters.
  • Christmas shopping.
  • Planning vaycays.
  • Introversion.
  • Dinner dates with the girls.
  • Crossing things off on a to-do list.
  • Grandma's cinnamon rolls and orange julius's post-run and probably post-shower for my families sake.
  • Neil.
  • Playing games (the board or card kind not the emotional kind).
  • Baking.
  • Seeing new couples form.
  • Quality family time.
  • Throwing around the pigskin.
  • Thought-provoking runs under the stars at 4:30 am (if you are my mother, feel free to change that 4 to a 6 for your sanity).
  • The anticipation of things to come.
  • Random acts of kindness.
  • Brightening someone else's day.
  • Living my faith out loud.
  • Upsets.
  • Underdogs.
  • Sitting Indian Style.
  • Daddy Daughter Dates.
  • Putting up my out of office e-mail reply.
  • Ice water.
  • Learning to be thankful on days other than just Thanksgiving.
  • Big League Chew (a.k.a. BUBBLE GUM. No, I am not ruining my teeth or my gum line with this.  Speaking of, the dentist has been calling my name for about 2 years now. Gross, unnecessary fact. I know.)
  • The outlet this blog has become.
  • Smiling for no reason.
  • Banana peppers.  Those little things are oddly delicious.
  • New shampoo that will probably last me 9 months (also, probably unnecessary information).
  • Being thankful each and every day because each and every day is a gift from The Big Man Upstairs.
    Enjoy this holiday season and spend time thanking God for each of the blessings He provides, as well as, those closest to you for impacting your life.  Most importantly, go live your life like the gift that each breath is :)  Happy Thanksgiving, kiddo's!
