Today I am thankful for crockpots, good food, and the people that I share them with. I'm  grateful for a husband who juggles his schedule to help out at the house.
Thankful for the ability to run and play kickball.  It may seem funny but hey I am lapping everyone sitting on the couch! And last but not least,  I am grateful for the Tuesday morning Women of Faith group that I belong to.

gratitude walk: day 2

You thought I forgot  already didn't  you! I  didn't I promise. 
Today I am grateful for a fun date day yesterday with my love. Some day (in the not so distant future) we are going to be a couple with grown kids. I want to know Ben and have already invested the time into staying a couple and doing things with each other.
 I am thankful that he pushes me out of my comfort zone and to do new things. 
I am grateful for a place to  worship and pursue my relationship with my Savior. 
Thankful for the ability to run and compete in sports.
Have you started your gratitude walk yet? No?!? Go start now!

gratitude walk

One of our lead pastors encouraged us last week to complete a gratitude challenge. I like the idea of a gratitude walk but I get distracted easily and I learn better from concrete exercises. So here I am. For those that are annoyed by the daily gratitude challenges in November, I am going to warn you know that I am shooting for 3 months of daily thankful statements.
I am making it public to hold me accountable and on the blog so it is included in our daily life for my family to reflect on.
So here goes......
Today I am grateful for Kenzie. In the early morning hours (0420) when she woke up today,  I was thinking just how blessed I was to be her mommy. I never knew I wanted her and can't imagine life without her. Her adorable grin is there to greet me 99% of the time and her baby enthusiasm is hard not to giggle at. I have far too many friends who have lost precious children and even more who were never able to have them, not to realize what a precious gift she is to me.
So day 1 is complete. Here is my challenge to you.....join me on my gratitude walk and see what it changes in your life!
