We started our marathon thanksgiving day by doing a turkey trot, then lots of food for the afternoon and we finished with a game of rummy. So after an 18 hour day I have had my fill of Thanksgiving -- now onto the Christmas season!! I am so excited!!
It has been 4 days since my last post, so it looks like I need to catch up with 4 things I am thankful for! 1. People in my life who are honest and real. Perfection or the facade of perfection is annoying. (Striving to improve things in your life is completely different) I enjoy friends and family who can be positive and also real at the same time! I have read two blogs today that have been so refeshing about authenticity and not wearing masks! So glad there are still people out there who aren't like some politicians! 2. Being able to exercise (Notice I said "able") -- Luciano and I signed up for a Turkey Trot that we will run on Thanksgiving. Haven't trained for it but its only a 5K so we should be fine! Being sore never hurt anyone! 3. God's Creations - Today we went to the children's pool to watch the seals play in the ocean and let me say that it was so cute to watch them frolic and roll and let the waves push them up on the rocks. 4. Okay now I am going to be very real -- the thing that I am so very grateful for is toilet paper. I can't go a day without it -- can you?
On October 25, 1930, TWA offered one of the first all plane scheduled service from coast to coast—the Lindbergh Route. The route took 36 hours and initially called for overnights in Kansas City. It is amazing to think how far our society has come -- in just under 80 years! Today, I am thankful for airlines. Think about all the experiences in life that you have been able to enjoy because of an airplane ride!
It is getting so hard to just pick one thing each day that I am thankful for!!! I guess I should be thankful for that too! Today I am thankful for the life that I have been given and that all those that friends and family are all healthy!
Sometimes in life change can be scary. Then there are times when change is exciting. This time in my life is a season of exciting changes and that is what I am thankful for today! Only God knows what will happen in the next few months and I am ready to enjoy the ride!
Since December of 2007, we have been attending The Rock Church in San Diego. We have met some of the nicest people through the church. It has also helped our marriage. Our pastor, Miles McPherson also cracks us up!!! I am so thankful that we live here in San Diego and can attend a church that encourages people to "do something" in the community and make a difference instead of just going to church!
I am so thankful for our friends that we have met this past year! They are all such great people who truly care about making their marriages work! So here is to meeting new friends and appreciating your old friendships too!
Thankful day #3 - Grocery Store I am thankful that we don't have to be like the Waodani (whoa-DONNY)tribe (click on title link to find out more about this tribe)and forage in the wilderness for our food but we can just go to our local grocery store and pick out healthy goodness!
So I have been reading this amazing story for about 8 months about this miraculous boy, Stellan who recently turned a year old. In the womb, he was diagnosed with heart failure, suffering from Supraventricular Tachycardia, hydrops and heart block. As of November 9th Stellan has an ablation and...his heart beats in perfect sinus rhythm. His is totally and utterly SVT free and he will not need a pacemaker either!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am going to pick one thing each day that I am thankful for! Today I am thankful for my husband. With all the ups and downs that we have been through I appreciate him (even on the days I don't show it.)and all he is!
I am content but love to learn new things. I love my husband because he is always challenging himself and for his patience with me, even when I don't have any with him. I love my dog. On December 26th we welcomed our new little sweetheart! I love my life (most days) :)
