Happy Thanksgiving!

Politics and dead birds aside, I am a fan of Thanksgiving if only because it involves two of my favorite things: warm fuzzy feelings and food.

I could list a lot of things I am not thankful for at this very second, because I am definitely having one of those days BUT there is a heck of a lot more that I am thankful for, and that is much more fun to share, right?

This year I am thankful for not one but TWO happy, healthy daughters. I am lucky to get to be their mama and that Annabel has been a relatively easy baby compared to a certain someone else...

I am thankful that I have an awesome husband to raise those two kiddos with and that even though this season in our life is more falling asleep on the couch at 8:30 than sunset strolls, there is no one in the world I would rather have by my side.

I am thankful for my mom and the renewed commitment we have made to our relationship; the mother/daughter relationship is a special one and I am thankful to have such a loving mom who is also nailing the Gramma role.

I am thankful for a job that challenges me, that makes me feel a sense of purpose when I leave the house each morning and that lets me work with some pretty great people.

I am thankful that I get to lace up my shoes and run any day that I want because I am healthy and able to; I am thankful that I have an amazing group of people to run with every week and that all those miles have led to me Boston 2016.

I am thankful that tonight and tomorrow I will spend time with my friends and family and have a warm home that we own to come home to.

I may be busy, exhausted, stretched thin and more quick to think about the have-nots than the haves, but tomorrow I am going to try extra hard to focus on the latter.

Happy Thanksgiving!
