Things that are 5 Things I am Grateful For

The one thing you should know about me is that Thanksgiving is my Favorite Holiday! Seriously! Hands Down! Favorite!

I feel a lot of times Thanksgiving gets thrown under the bus when it comes to Christmas. It makes me mad seeing Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving. I love giving and I love the Christmas season, but remembering things we are thankful for comes first. Being grateful is a sign that you are happy and that you have a positive outlook on life (says my gratitude journal that I own).

December Fat Boy! This month is for MY holiday Now Hop in that sleigh and wait your turn.

Here are my 5 things that I am grateful for this year:

1. That I am able to run. I don’t know how many people tell me that they wish they could run like me, or run as much as I have been running.

2. That I have a loving husband who supports me in my running addiction, and will even help me on my long runs as being a support for me, like he did back in September for my 20 miler.

3. Living in a Country that allows me to believe what I believe, and be who I want to be.

4. For Friends and Family who love and support us.

5. For my Two little furbabies, Hurley and Pepper.

    I absolutely agree with your five! I don't like to go to stores or see any decorations before Thanksgiving. Today, however, I started decorating my house. NOW, it's time!. Even though I'm coming back from a foot injury, I'm grateful I've been able to cycle in this beautiful fall weather!

    Yes I agree! After Thanksgiving it's time to start decorating! Mine won't be up until after next weekend! That's good that you are still able to cycle on a foot injury! It has been beautiful this fall – now winter's here…
