This is a bit overdue since I wasn't able to check in on Thanksgiving. I was stuck in bed, sick with the flu. I didn't even get to eat : (. I guess that's what I get for running in the rain but I was just dying to hit my favorite route in Napa (Congress Valley Rd for the Napans). Oh well, I'll just be looking forward to next year. : )
I still wanted to write my Thankful list before we switch gears into Christmas mode. I LOVE Christmas and can't wait to enjoy the holiday I get to celebrate the birth of Christ, my Lord and Savior. However, I don't want to move on without taking the time to honor Him on Thanksgiving - the holiday celebrating the fact that God has been faithful to us. He is who He says He is, and He has kept His promises.
So here is my list of blessings, the physical manifestations of my exceptionally and truly blessed life. I set a timer for 15 minutes...
Daisy's soft puppy fur. My relationships. Technology. Blogs and the wealth of information they provide. Bottled water. Vitamins. Running. Nike +ipod. Gold's Gym. Beach Bootcamp. My vehicle. Warm Uggs and cuddly blankets on chilly winter days. A good book and a crackling fire. Nature. The clarity and wonder that can be found there. My faith in Him. LOVE and HOPE. Inspiration. Sports. Football. Scrapbooking. Memories and the ability to preserve them. AMERICA. Music. iMac. Organization. Pictures. Pink. Juicy sweat suits and yoga pants. Coffee. Holiday decorations. Santa. Belief, that it makes things REAL. Christmas cookies. Cutting down our own Christmas tree. Traditions. Warm homes. Journaling. Creativity. Virtual friends. Down comforters. Favorite jeans. Cupcakes and pink frosting. Movies. Twilight books. Gold Canyon candles. Inspiration. Uplifting and genuine people. Hot summers. The Word and His way, THE way. The University of San Diego.

Old friends and new beginnings. Change.
Here is the link to Stacey...my inspiration for listing my blessings on my blog. I'm hoping to make an annual tradition and daily rememberance.
