I'm definitely a "cup's half full" kind of person. I don't sweat the small stuff. And I know I have a lot to be thankful for. Today, I'm feeling uber-appreciative of the blessings in my life. Especially these ...
1. My Beautiful Daughters - Last night was Doodle's preschool graduation (she didn't really graduate since she's not old enough for Kindergarten). I took the opportunity to get the girls all dressed up and take some photos.
Later, when I was looking through the shots, all I could think was how lucky I am to have them and how lucky they are to have each other. Sure, we have our moments, but I love them more than I could ever express and I know they are destined to be best friends.
2. J - He is my best friend and I can't imagine my world without him. He puts up with everything I throw at him and his support never falters. I could tell him I was going to run to the moon and back and he'd ask what he could do to help. Because of that, and a million other reasons, I love him endlessly.
He provides for us. Loves us. And would do anything to protect us. I know how much he sacrifices to give us the life that we want and I am forever grateful.
3. The Posse - This morning, exactly one month since my first day of "forced rest" thanks to the shoulder, I rejoined the Posse for a run.
Five miles (a post-surgery PR) in the heat. I fell back and G stuck with me. The Speedsters looped back to cheer us on.
We might be a bunch of outcasts. We might be too competitive. But we are there for each other. 100%. No doubt about it. And I wouldn't trade that for anything.
