Here are a few reasons why:
2. I am happy to be training for the Houston Marathon. I decided I wanted to run a marathon a few years ago, but I haven't been able to commit to the training. I am 99.9% sure I can get it done this year! I love the challenge of running a full marathon, rather than a half. I figure, why do something 'half' way. It feels good to be in control of my body. I feel strong.
3. Friends are so important to me, and lately, I feel so much love from my small group of good friends. We don't see each other every day. We don't talk every day, but I understand them and they understand me. We do what we can to support one another and understand that our families comes first...no fussing, no drama and no whining. I love my patient friends.
4. We are healthy. My family and I all have fully functioning bodies. I have two arms and two legs and no major sicknesses. I can live my life to the fullest. I thank God just about every time I am active that everything is working properly and is simply there to use.
5. I am thankful for my fab house in a great city, my kid's attendance of wonderful schools, money to buy whatever we need, having both sets of Grandparents alive and kickin', my school being paid for in-full (so far), being married to a smart and honorable man, knowing Heavenly Father gently teaches me and forgives me, having great neighbors and babysitters and kids that are trained to go to bed before 8pm!
