Today I was overwhelmed with Thankfulness.  I know I know Thanksgiving was last week, and we are now into Christmas season… but I figured it’s never a bad time to say the things you are thankful for!

1. I am thankful that I have incredible friends/family/people that I share life with!  Seriously a girl could not ask for more encouraging and stimulating conversation each and every day!  I pray that everyone can experience the laughter, the cries, the hugs, the smiles, and the depth of friendship that I experience in the people around me with at least one or two people in their life!

2. I am so thankful for the opportunity to pursue a crazy dream!  God has blessed me with the equipment and facilities to train on, a coach who invests his time and talents in me, family who cares enough to make it all happen, and friends who cheer me on every step of the way!

3. I am thankful for the health and physical ability to continue on in this sport.  There will come a day when my body no longer allows me to do this, but today I am so blessed to have the chance!

4. I am thankful that God meets us exactly where we are at, with the mess that is our lives, and walks us through it one step at a time.  It can be a long hard journey at times, but a journey worth taking.

5. And finally I am thankful to be thankful!  I know it sounds silly, but there are times in my life where I forget how very blessed I am.  I get into a rut of complaining or thinking about how I wish things were, and I forget to stop and “in all things give thanks”.  A thankful heart is truly a happy heart!


What are the things you are thankful for in this moment?!


Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever…
Psalm 107:1
