Out with the group at Runwell tonight. Sean and I went out fast, turned around a little earlier than the usual 3 miles out, and then came back quick. It was a good, hard run, and I enjoyed the company. Thanks, Sean!
It’s that day here in the U.S. where every blogger, Facebooker, Twitter user, and Instagram account will stop and give thanks for something. I can go through my list and talk about The Wife, Little Buddy, the Teenager, and Baby Girl. I can mention my job, my friends, a little Superhero I know, and all of the other things that make life enjoyable. I could even be super-predictable and mention how I am thankful for running.
All of these are good things, and I am thankful for all of them. But I am most thankful for the fact that we all get to be thankful. We are all so busy, and lives are so full, that its hard to stop and remember to pay attention to those things in our lives that require or deserve thanks. We have a day set aside to do so.
Of course, we should be thankful everyday. To make sure to give away a day for thankfulness is a wonderful way to spend those hours. Especially if you get to do it with family and friends. I will be together here today with mine, enjoying our time and fellowship together. I hope you get to do the same.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
