I love getting up in the morning! I clap my hands and say "this is gonna be a great day!"

This time of year it is difficult not to think about the things we are thankful for. In fact, I find myself constantly thinking about what it means to be thankful? I’m not talking about being thankful in a way I am when someone opens a door for me, what I’m talking about is the feeling of being thankful for the blessings in my life! So today I am reflecting back on the things that I am thankful for…the things that touch me to the core because they are a subtle reminder to keep me focused on the positives in my life. And because this list is so impactful to me, I thought I would share a few, or 15 of them to be exact, with you. I love this list and hope that I will continue to look back on it and be truly thankful for these things every time I am feeling down, depressed or sorry for myself. Because at the end of the day, I really am a lucky girl to have all of these things in my life!

1. I am thankful for my family, especially my parents: Even though my mom isn’t here today, she would definitely be proud of the mom, daughter, sister, friend and woman I have become. And my dad, what can I say about him other than he is AMAZING! My brothers, boy…I don’t even know where to begin with them other than I adore the fact that they support me no matter what! And my adorable kids…I’m just thankful that no mater what the outcome of the day, they always, and I mean always, manage to put a huge smile on my face!

2. I am thankful for my independence: I am so thankful for being single and having the freedom to make the decisions I want about my life without having to run it by anyone else!

3. I am thankful for clear crisp fall days perfect for an afternoon run

4. I am thankful for hot showers on a cold morning. I know it’s crazy, but I get a lot of thinking done in the shower…many a good blog posts have come from a long hot shower.

5. I am thankful for my awesome friends who always make me laugh and give me a shoulder to cry on when I need it.

6. I am thankful for sleep…as much as possible…and oh yeah, uninterrupted too!

7. I am thankful for the freedom to believe in the God of the Bible!

8. I am thankful for being healthy: sure, I may need take a few steps and stretch in the morning before I feel less like an 80 year old woman upon waking, but in general I feel good!

9. I am thankful for music: It’s what gets me going in the morning and winds me down at night. Plus there is nothing better than watching my 6 year old dancing around the house listening to his iPod…can I just say, priceless!

10. I am thankful for the Internet: it’s every girls dream…I mean, who wouldn’t want to be able to, book a fun trip to Hawaii, buy a cute purse, and shop for a husband all without leaving the comfort of your bed?

11. I am thankful for the joy of writing: I’m not saying I’m particularly good at it, but hey, I’m a much better writer than say a woodworker, fencer, or artist…It’s my outlet and I’m thankful to have a place to share my stories.

12. I am thankful for being able to appreciate the weird things people do. Today on my way to work I saw a construction worker bent over and showing the largest amount of butt crack I had ever seen…it made me laugh!

13. I am thankful for random acts of kindness. My ex mother-in-law is a prime example of this. Every time she goes to Starbucks for coffee, she always buys the coffee of the person behind her. One question, how come I’m never directly behind her in line?

14. I’m thankful for my bronchial inhaler on a cold morning run.

15. I’m thankful for a job that I love and that I learn from each and every day…no matter how much I complain about it, I am right where I am supposed to
