I'm thankful for my son. He's 16 now, and starting to think about college, driving, and the typical things 16-year-olds think about. I'm so incredibly proud of him. At the end of May, as part of a requirement for earning a congressional award, he will be traveling to TURKEY for 21 days. He will be taking classes there and teaching English for service credits. Of course, he will also have plenty of time to explore. As someone who has never been out of the country, I am incredibly grateful that he will have this wonderful opportunity.
|With his new passport...I'm kind of jealous that I don't have one.|
|The car my son wants to drive|
|If anyone would like to buy me this as a gift, I would take it!|
|Driving in to work the other morning|
|The start of a run last week|
I'm thankful for a GREAT 8-mile run today. After a 6-miler earlier in the week, I felt like throwing in the towel altogether on this whole running thing. My legs felt heavy, my breathing was labored, and it was just hard! But, as always, every bad run will soon be replaced by a good one, and today was it. It's the farthest I've run since the marathon, it was pain-free, and that love was back! The sun was shining, the air was cool, and the sky was blue. What more could you ask for?
What are you thankful for today?
I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69:30)
