Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful today. I feel really good and I wish I could have this feeling every day.

I want to be calm like this and remember there is a lot of good in my life.

It’s funny, earlier this week there was a LOT of drama surrounding a family portrait. As one of seven kids, I come from a big immediate family. This picture was supposed to include grandkids and one great-grandkid, as well. I say “supposed to” because it’s now up in the air because of, how do I say this dellicately, “differing” priorities. Yay, family!

Needless to say, it was a little stressful. But today I feel great. I think how I ran 10 miles the other night–and I was able to converse throughout the whole thing. I don’t think I’ve ever run 10 miles and I’ve certainly not been able to converse through the whole stretch.

Next week I’ll be on my way to New Hampshire, to run my first ever half marathon. I’m excited, a little nervous, but mostly excited. I’ve wanted to go to New England for decades and I’ve wanted to run a half marathon for at least 10 years. Now I’m doing both, whee!

The kitties are happy and Sammi has accepted them really well, too. Life is good. I want to remember this, when there is a lot of family drama, I want to be able to focus on the good things in my life.

So that’s that. And OMG I ran 10 miles! I’m going to be running 13.1 miles in 10 days from now!! Ahh!
