thankful thursday #1

november is a time to remember to be thankful and i have been trying to figure out how i really want to do that! then i saw this post from betsy and knew it was here it goes:)

1. my family

we have always been incredibly close and there for each other. through this tough time they have been there even more than i could have ever asked for! willing to fly out and kick ass if i needed, let me move home, help me with that move, and check in on me when i least expect it but need it most. i am so blessed:)
2. my friends

they are often our extended family and mine are no different! we are there for each other and often able to pick up right where we left off no matter how long its been in between conversations. they make me laugh/smile and know me through and through. you may not get to choose your family, but you do choose your friends and i have some amazing ones:)
3. plans

november was already going to be a busy month and know i am even more grateful i have so many things going on.

11/9/-11/10-ragnar las vegas (a 200 mile relay with a 12 person team in 2 vans. i cant wait!)
11/17-11/18-scotts wedding weekend (i have known him since he was in kindergarten, now hes getting married. hes like my brother from another mother:))
11/20-11/24-thanksgiving weekend (hello delicious food and amazing family in california)

having so many fun things to look forward to really helps those tough moments. not to say they go away, but fun plans are important for the soul!
my brothers:)
dang im short.
4. my job

i may not love it everyday, but am so so blessed and lucky to have one! and the people i work with are out of this world. they keep me coming back everyday!

5. being of able body and mind

this may sound silly, but we often take for granted the things we are able to do everyday. i am so grateful that my body allows me to push it further and mind is able to keep up with all the things i put it through on a daily basis.

stay tuned for next week!!
