I know it's a bit cliched in November to feel so overwhelmingly thankful but I can't help it! I was entering this giveaway for a lovely apron and it got me typing about something I have been going over in my mind during my runs lately. I often start to think about how thankful I am for my health, my sturdy legs and my senses so that I can get out and run and enjoy the wonderful day! I am thankful that I have the leisure time to spend on a physical activity of my choosing and not forced to work a back-breaking job that I don't enjoy. This leads me to think of how thankful I am to a job at all to go to after my shower and that my husband also has a job and that our house is snug and cozy with a fridge to keep the milk cold and an oven to warm the biscuits.
During crafting I am often thankful that my most pressing issue is what project to work on or what color to next add to a quilt. When I work with Sully, I am thankful that I have discretionary income to spend on dog training and shows. And when I bake up a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip bars, I am thankful that I don't have to make due with the items the food bank has that week.
I am indeed a fortunate, and very thankful, woman!
