moving forward, Thankful

Thankful #5

Today was a pretty hectic day, so this post will be short and sweet.

Today I am thankful for:

  1. The ugliness in my life, for it helps me appreciate the beauty.
  2. Two years ago today my husband returned on U.S. soil after being deployed to Iraq for a year. So I am so thankful he came home safely, again.
  3. Quick dinners for busy nights. I made a large batch of meatballs on Sunday so I didn’t have to cook today! Winning!
  4. My dog. Even after the hardest day at work, he’s there at the door to greet me and he makes all the “yuck” go away.
  5. 70 degree evenings. I’ve my slider opened and am listening to the sand cranes wiz by while they sing their evening songs.
My Sammy, begging for food more times than not, LOL


What are you thankful for today? Do you have pets? How is the weather where you are at?

  1. I’m thankful for my job even though I’m doing double duty all week backing someone up. It’s always tough on days/weeks like that because I have a super busy territory myself. Walked 1.33 miles and got in a one minute plank, like you! Came home to my grand dog Kasey, a big black Lab. He makes me smile too.

  2. I have one cat. At one time we had five. My favorite died last weekend at age 20.

    I am grateful he lived that long.

    It is freezing here. Single digits in the am and lots of snow.

    It’s a challenge to find a place to run.
