Thankful post

I read a book last fall that challenged me to start a Thankful Journal.

I enjoyed the book so much that I gave it to my mom (with a journal) for Christmas.

I was in a good swing of things until last month when life just got the better of me.  Then I slacked off.

I can tell at times that my heart didn't start the day in the right place!

So, here's today's entry:

  • I'm thankful for wonderful MOPS friends that I can be around and be myself with.  Ones that encourage me to stick up for myself and applaud me when I can be confrontational.
  • I'm thankful for the hope of a summer of fun with my boys.
  • I'm thankful that my husband continues to be very busy and very booked with projects in uncertain economic times.
  • I'm thankful that even though my running has slowed down, my activity level remains moderate, and weight loss continues.  Slow and steady wins the race.
  • I'm thankful that our van has just passed 190,000 miles and is still running (knock on wood).

You'd be on my thankful list, if ever I got around to starting one...

Ha! I'm not a fan of Dodge (even though I love their mini-vans before the current style came out), but no other car lasts that long. They don't have a good reputation for their transmissions, though.
