Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for the beautiful pink flowers on our tree outside - they are the first thing I see when I open the backdoor and I can’t help but smile every single time.

I am thankful for the treadmills at work that make sprint workouts so much easier than my treadmill at home (because of the way the speed changes).

I am thankful for time to roll around in the grass with Ina.

I am thankful for the ability to make her laugh and the ability to listen and really hear her laugh. 

I am thankful for my crockpot and rice cooker - steam some veg and you have an almost completely hands free meal.

[We had this Mediterranean chicken with wild rice and steamed veggies.]

I am thankful for early bedtimes, sleeping with the windows open, hearing the birds chirping in the morning, sandal weather, thunderstorms, seeds, Amazon 2 day shipping, 5 pound bags of brown rice, tiny bows, good advice, and Blue Bell ice cream. (How is that for random?)

Also, I am thankful for butterflies.

Thought for the day, “If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies."

What are you thankful for?
