Just another one of those thankful Thanksgiving posts

First off, I’m thankful for my husband, Jason. Of course. He is so many wonderful things that I can’t even begin to describe him in a few words. But I will try. Accepting. Supportive. Calming. Cute. (Really) smart. Hard working. Loyal. Honest. Funny. Genuine. And many more.

I’m thankful to be married to a man that would buy me flowers on Thanksgiving because he knows how much I like them on the table during a special dinner.

I’m even more grateful to him for waking up at 5:30 am on Thanksgiving morning to go run a 5K. Even though I know he didn’t want to.

Before there was Jason there were my parents. (Well, they’re still there, but you know what I mean. I’m actually quite thankful for that too.) And like everyone, the older I get the more blessed I feel that I landed in their home.

My dad is probably the hardest working, most driven person I know. He is also able to forgive in superhuman amounts. No matter the drama or wrongs that surround him, he always manages to remain neutral and accepting.

My mom is like basically Jesus. Ha! Seriously though. She once told me that she feels like her purpose in life is to love, and every part of her life is a testament to that statement. My mom is absolutely my role model, and I hope that one day I will be able to set the example she has for my children.

I’m thankful for old friends. I’m thankful for Stacey, who is kind of my female version of Jason. I’m thankful for Elsha, who also has a blog, and for Laura, who reads mine. I’m thankful that I can see any of these girls once a year when we’re in the same town, and it’s like we haven’t skipped a beat.

I’m thankful for new friends. Like Kelsea. I’m thankful that she likes to have a plan and shows up places on time. I’m thankful that she’ll let me talk her into signing up for any number of fitness events…Four Bridges Half Marathon Relay, Muddy Buddy, Emerald Across the Bay 12K, Oyster Adventure Race, Malibu Half Marathon, and the Walnut Creek Turkey Trot.

Speaking of the Walnut Creek Turkey Trot, I’m grateful that Kelsea stuck with me and cheered me on through every painful step. She is 100% responsible for my new PR!! (Race report to follow.)

I’m thankful for my blog world friends. You keep me entertained and inspire me to both keep at it and set my sights higher!

And, although I don’t always love my job, I’m thankful that I have one. Not only that, one that affords my lifestyle of fitness events and good eatin’!

And last (but certainly not least) I’m thankful for my body. I’m thankful that it puts up with everything I drag it through and only complains with a few minor aches and pains.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog!…I used to be intimidated by Indian dishes as well but I learned all you really need to do is get the spices and it's the same steps as any other recipe! Also a little tip to make it easier if you're intimidated by "dhana-jira powder" – I was able to find all the Indian spices REALLY cheap at a local Indian market. However, I've heard that Whole Foods carries A LOT of them, they just will probably be a little more expensive! I actually "cheat" with the dhana-jira powder- it's equal to "2 parts coriander to 1 part cumin" and I have both of those spices so I just mix it on my own! I added that to the recipe so I hope it helps – you should definitely try it!
