Today I was really thankful to have the day off. While everyone was running around making fools of themselves at Walmart, I went and got a massage. Got take out, put up the Christmas decorations, and went to bed at 9PM!!!! It was glorious!
400 years ago a small group of people risked starvation and freezing to death with no relief in sight for a better life. Fast forward to today, and we definitely have that. Fortunately these people are my ancestors.
I woke up this morning, watched the parade over coffee and thought of my grandmother when the rockets came on. It made me remember how much she loved the parade, and looked forward to watching it with her grandchildren.
Today is also the day my grandfather would have turned 100.
At dinner, I thought of all the memories we shared with the loved ones who are no longer with us.
So today, on this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the loved ones who I am lucky enough to spend my life with each day. My rocks. My family.
The past few days have been busy hosting family visiting from out if state. So these past few days I’m thankful for the wonderful gift of transportation. Without it I would get to see some amazing people I now call family.
It’s hard to believe I’ve almost reached the end of this 30 days of thanks!!! WOW!
Today I am thankful for Shoprite. Just by purchasing my groceries every week, I was able to score a free turkey, which I plan to donate to one of my students’ families.
Simply put- today I am thankful to have had nothing to do!!!!
Yesterday was a great day in NYC with my brother and sister in law along with some best friends. We had a great dinner, lots of laughs and it the first snow flakes of the seasons began to fall while we were walking to dinner. I am thankful for that time we all had together…
The past few days have brought many triumphs, both professionally and personally. I had a successful photo shoot, some positive feedback at work, and I completed today my final week of my diet challenge. So here are my thanks for the past few days:
Day 20- I am thankful for Crossfit entering my life. It scared me. I made fun of it. I don’t like saying the WOD. But Ima keep coming back. May be hooked…
Day 21- I am thankful for organizational skills. Its nice when it goes noticed…
Day 22- I am thankful for two things: my nutritionist and my will power. Together, I was able to loose 25 in 3 months!!!! I have never felt so good! I can’t believe I could do something like that!
Today I am thankful for connecting with someone on the same trek as me. Sometimes you need a girlfriend going through what you’re going through in life. I hope our friendship grows!
Today is a tough one. I’m waaaaayyyyy tired and in a super bad mood today. Ironically as crappy as I felt, everyone decided today was the day that my 20 lb. weight loss is noticeable. So I guess I’m thankful for all the people who in-advertally cheered me up by noticing some hard work!!!!
Day 16- I am thankful for family. Both blood and family by association.
Day 17- I am thankful for the business my husband and I are starting. We had a very successful shoot today, great feedback on another and looking forward to the future!!!! When you live your passion, it’s hard to think it can be a reality, and when that reality starts to pop through…it’s really quite exciting.
Good day today!
