It’s Thankful Thursday over at Kate Says Stuff, and a few weeks ago I committed to doing this weekly, to remember the many blessings I have and the many, MANY reasons to be thankful. But this week is a struggle, and I’m going to have to go back to basics. I am having a tough week, and have often felt less than thankful.
But what I am thankful for, am always thankful for, is my husband and son. When all the other crap is said and done, they are still there. And love me, no matter what. One of the very best things about being a mum, to a young child anyway, is being someone’s favourite person in the world. I am thankful for that feeling.
I’m thankful for my job and my now-steady weekly income. It is much nicer to be permanent than casual, and I’m so grateful that my employer believed in me enough to make me permanent.
I’m thankful for our upcoming trip to NZ. It gives us something to look forward to, plan for, dream about. And I absolutely can NOT wait to have 8 days away from everything. I wish it was longer!
I’m also thankful for my personal training group. I never feel like going, but always feel better for having gone. And the girls are so encouraging and supportive, even though they’d kick my ass in a fitness competition, they are that much fitter/stronger than me. they’re a huge motivation for me.
What are you thankful for this week? Link up and share with us at Kate Says Stuff.
